Parent partnership is an essential part of Greenfield, with this in mind we hold a variety of workshops throughout the year. In addition parents are invited to performances, assemblies and sports events. We hope you find these fun and useful in supporting your child. If you have any ideas for further workshops please contact us.
Throughout the year we arrange Inspire sessions where all parents are invited into school to work alongside their children on a range of subjects including reading, writing and math’s games. Parents have responded very positively to these and they are well attended.
Parents are invited in at the end of each term to celebrate the children’s work. This may be in the form of a ‘performance’ or an opportunity to come and share their workbooks and art projects. This has been very successful and parents have said they enjoy this opportunity to share in their child’s learning.
These workshops take place once per year.
Parents are invited to find out how calculations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division are taught and recorded. Teachers demonstrate how each calculation is written and discussed with parents and how parents can support their child.
READING & PHONICS WORKSHOPS
These workshops take place once per year. Miss Meakin highlighted ways parents could help their child in this key area as well demonstrating recent changes and developments in the teaching of reading. Parents also have the opportunity to come and observe how we teach phonics through RML. Parents found the workshops to be very useful.
This workshop runs once per year. It aims to highlight the dangers that could be faced when young children are using the Internet, working unsupervised and in particular chat rooms.
