One of West Norfolk’s smallest schools helped parents get to grips with helping teach mathematics to children at home with a special event yesterday, Monday, January 12.

Wormegay Church of England Primary School, which has just 31 pupils aged four to 11, welcomed six parents to a Maths Open Morning.

Headteacher Georgie Earl said: “We held the event because when we hold parents evenings, the one thing parents always ask us is to help them understand how we teach maths in school.

“We set out the processes for adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing for the little children right through to the big ones.”

She said it helped parents understand the new curriculum and teach their children at home in the same way they are taught at school.

“The feedback was really good,” she added. “They really enjoyed learning alongside their children.”
