Parent Feedback - Maths Taster Sessions 

Spring Term 

Year One

I found the taster session really helpful, I enjoyed watching the children engage and learn.  The teaching style really engages them.  I look forward to the next.

 

Good to see a structured class and the deployment of extra help where needed.  Good balance of group and independent exercises.

 

I really enjoyed watching a maths lesson.  I love the way the teacher gets all children involved and to the children it seemed enjoyable to them.  I like how learning is practical and using the resources to help the children in their learning.  I love the marking criteria you use as well and how you challenge the children.

 

Very interesting and enjoyable experience.  Given an excellent insight into how learning is achieved.  All children were engaged, well behaved, good re-enforcing of learning, overall a very pleasant session, well done.

 

Really useful.  Love how well the children work together and respond with confidence to the teacher.  Very happy learning!  Pleasure to be a ‘Fly on the Wall’.

Year Two

 

The children are really motivated and engaged and the atmosphere for learning was excellent.  There were no ‘bad’ mistakes – everything used for a learning experience.  The teacher has a lovely relationship with the class.

 

I was really impressed with the variety of methods used and how interactive the lesson was.  The teacher was so patient and positive with all the children.

 

Great experience, would be interested in seeing another topic in the future.  Lovely calm and fun atmosphere at the same time.

It would be nice to be able to sit with the children whilst they are doing their learning to observe them individually as well as collectively.  Thank you for offering us these opportunities to observe our children’s learning.

 

Year Three

I found it valuable attending the sit in lesson today, it was great to actually see how a lesson is run and how the children get included.  I would like to attend another one.

 

Really loved seeing the equipment (like the visualiser) that is available to the teacher and pupils.  Great to see how they keep the kids engaged.

 

Taster session was interesting to see how well the children engaged with each other and the teacher.  Found the teacher really made sure the children understood what they needed to do.

 

Year Four 

Excellent range and use of resources, teaching methods.  Teacher was fun and all of the children were engaged.  I was surprised at the number of children in class for one teacher.  Excellent method to guide how I can help and increase learning at home, to encourage my child.

 

Good to see clarification from the start on method to use.  Good behaviour.  Useful to have immediate checking that what they are doing is correct, and that they understand what the answer is, not just doing the sum.

 

It was a very happy and relaxed lesson.  All the children were totally engaged.  They were given choices as to what questions they wanted to try.  I would’ve loved to have come to Round Diamond if I was a child again.

 

Year Five

I found the taster session very interesting and important as it shows teachers’ skills as well as the students’ learning capabilities.  Enforces both student and teacher out of their comfort zones.  Good to be out of your comfort zone as it’s that what helps you grow.

 

Interesting use of diagrams throughout.  I will incorporate more into home learning.  Excellent teaching as always.  I am constantly surprised how well the children grasp the very adult terminology.  Many thanks.

 

The learning style is more mature, preparing them for secondary school.  Plenty of help and support was offered to the students.  The quieter students were being aided in joining in discussion.  Visuals in their learning were triggering a better response when being asked questions or during their discussions.

 

Year Six 

It was a pleasure to be in the classroom and witness so many children engaged in their learning.  When asked “who would like help” there was no hesitation by some pupils to move onto another table to help each other.  All the children were engrossed in their learning and seemed to be enjoying themselves very much.  Thank you, I really enjoyed the lesson.

 

I really enjoyed today and found it very helpful to see how my child is taught.   I really like how the children talk about their answers and discuss the subject.  No child seemed embarrassed asking questions like I used to when I was at school! 

 

The teacher got the whole class answering and engaging with problem solving.  They wanted to learn and weren’t worried about making mistakes.

It was fantastic to see my daughter in her school environment. I am amazed at how much they have learnt in Year 1 already from looking at the wall displays.

I have really enjoyed the first open afternoon of Year 1. It is a real pleasure to see how happy the children are in their day to day environment. We can’t wait for the next one.
