Family Cafe

Every half term each class within the Federation holds a family cafe, for these events parents, carers and grandparents are invited to come into the school and join in with activities with their children. This is great time for parents to experience first-hand what their children are doing at school.

For the family cafe held by Oak class they read the book ‘The inventions of Hugo Cabret’ and created their own magnetic games to support practising their times tables, below are a selection of comments received from the parents who attended.

‘Great day looking forward to the next one’

‘Fantastic hour spent in school with happy, engaged children and relaxed staff’

‘Great fun! Also gave me a chance to see where I can help at home with maths’

‘Fantastic as usual! Thank you for a great afternoon’

‘It helps parents to engage with the school curriculum with their child and the school community. It was obvious that my child is better at maths than her mother’
