Ambleside Parents Learning Partnership
Some of the feedback we received from you as parents after the recent Stay and Learn was that you really want to support your children at home with homework but that the methods we teach now in school are so different to when you were at school. In light of this feedback we are trialling a new initiative called APLP (Ambleside Parent Learning Partnership).
There will be different sessions run over the course of the year focussing on different year groups each time, so if there is not a session for the year group your child is in now there will be soon.
The first sessions we are running next half term are as follows:
27th February at 2:30 pm – Maths for Year 5 and 6
This will focus on multiplication, division and fractions.
28th of February at 2:30pm – Reading for Years 3 and 4
This will focus on some of the key reading skills that we teach.
13th of March at 2:30pm – Punctuation and Grammar for the whole school, year F2 – Year 6
This will have a focus on some of the key SPaG skills that we teach in the different year groups
In the sessions we will show you the methods we use to teach the key skills and will give you an opportunity to ask questions.
How to videos will be put Class Dojo following the workshops for you to refer to when you are at home or if you are not able to make it to any of the sessions relevant to you.
The APLP sessions will take place in the hall. Please come through the main gate entrance and walk around to the side entrance of the hall where we will be waiting for you.
