Mums go back to the classroom

PARENTS got the chance to go back to class at a Saffron Walden school in the build up to Mothering Sunday.

Katherine Semar Infants School hold the event every year to give mums the chance to see what their children get up to in the classroom.

They get to spend an hour in the classroom, watching lessons and joining in with activities – and are even invited to test out school dinners at lunchtime!

Headteacher Jane Gilmour said: “This is a really nice opportunity for the parents to see how their children are within the classroom. We hold the same for dads in the build up to Father’s Day.

“We do lots of things for the parents to come into the school, such as to watch plays, but they still like to see their children and how they act in class and the things we do.
