We had lots of fun when we invited the parents in for an the afternoon! We taught them how to do loads of different things, like how to create one cut books; how to do a mental maths test and how to earn a pen licence.
Ethan taught his Mum how to make a stained glass window using only triangles.
Daisy used a character description to help her Mum illustrate a story.
Both Adams and Ben showed Adam’s Mum how to sort different rocks into igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary.
Emma and Rachel taught Emma’s Mum how to reflect shapes in a mirror line.
It was really exhausting doing all that teaching… I think we’ll go back to learning instead! 🙂
4OC had a busy afternoon teaching their visitors lots of skills which they have been working on in class.
We were impressed with how hard our visitors worked for their ‘teachers.’
Some parents were lucky enough to earn pen licenses if their handwriting was of good enough quality! Visitors were put through their mental maths skills in a timed mental maths test, and enjoyed some guided reading sessions in the book corner. Visitors also had the opportunity to group and classify rocks according to their properties, with the aid of our geologists. Other activities included designing a stained glass window using triangles, drawing a character based on a description and reflecting shapes.
It was a great afternoon, we would like to thank all of our visitors who made it such a success as well as the children who worked so hard to run the activities.
