Financial education through our PATPAL Morning

A quick reminder to all of our parents that tomorrow is the day of our PATPAL Morning (Pupils As teachers, Parents As Learners). All staff and children are looking forward to welcoming you into our classrooms to share our Numeracy learning around the theme, ‘I spend, I save’ from 9.15am – 10.15am.

This focus on money sense will help to prepare our children with skills for life and work. To help you to help develop these skills further at home I have uploaded a booklet called ‘I spend, I save’ to the Useful Documents page. This contains activities and useful web links to family learning games on money.

After the PATPAL morning we will have a coffee morning and recycled uniform shop in the small hall.

Please come and encourage your child in his / her learning!

As discussed on our Parents as learning Partners event I have uploaded our new Parental Support Booklet to the Useful Documents Section of the Blog. This is the first of this year’s series of Parent Support Booklets. Look out over the course of the year for I spend, I save (Financial Education) I solve (Problem Solving Strategies) I count (Number talks) and I love Maths (Growth Mindset).

Working together in partnership we CAN make a difference to our children’s attainment in Numeracy.
