Parents of Year 4 children have been attending maths workshops in Katherine Semar Schools, Saffron Walden.

The parents looked at different approaches to learning times tables and spent time working with their children.

The sessions explained the teaching journey from learning to count, to being able to complete long multiplication questions.

Deputy head Mr Hull said: “We’re thrilled to be able to open up our school to parents again. The sessions were really well attended and the atmosphere was really positive.

"The children loved showing off their knowledge to their parents.”

Phonics and reading workshops are in place for other year groups in the coming weeks.
