At Marion Richardson we encourage parents to get involved in their child’s learning. We offer the following:
Parents from each year group are offered two workshops led by teachers on how to support their child with Maths and English.
In addition, each year we offer a three week course called Maths for Dads, to enable fathers to understand how to support their child’s learning through playing maths games and using every day activities to support their child’s understanding of maths.
Maths with Dads- certificate presentation
Family Learning Outings
Through our partnership with the Apples and Pears Foundation we are able to offer every child the opportunity to go on two trips with their parents to a museum or London landmark, a year .These trips take place on a Saturday morning from 9.30-12.30. One trip is with their fathers/uncles/cousins and one is for mothers /aunties to come on with their children.
All the trips are linked to the topics the children are studying in class. About 170 children came on trips last year .
