On the 23rd of March Southend Primary School held an Open Afternoon to share their learning with parents and carers. There were five stations, and we were each in charge of one of these, using our knowledge to teach parents and carers. These stations included, Reciprocal Reading, Garageband, Origami bookmark making, screen printing and food and health. At the Reciprocal Reading station the parents were given the roles required for this and had to carry out that specific role when reading the text.
At Garage Band you used an app on the I-Pad that made music using different special effects. A group of children demonstrated making origami bookmarks to the parents and at the French station children enjoyed teaching parents how to speak French through games.
The group at Screen Printing were showing parents how to use the screens to create a pattern and how to carry out the printing correctly to produce a pattern.
The final group, those at the Café, were demonstrating their knowledge of farm/sea to fork by discussing with parents about how the food they were making/using got from the farm/sea to the plate and playing the Eatwell Plate game, putting foods into the correct groups. Parents were keen to get involved at each station and children enjoyed sharing what they had been learning. A very enjoyable afternoon was had by all.
