Calling all Year 2 and Year 6 Parents!

Dear Parents and Carers of Year 2 and Year 6 pupils, 

I would like to invite you along to an exciting new project launch that BRW will be hosting. We are delighted to have been selected to work with the independent charity National Numeracy on an exciting project that encourages children and families to do maths together at home.

This project will be initially rolled out to only Year 2 and Year 6 families. In order to explain more and demonstrate how this project will work, we would like as many parents/carers of Year 2 and Year 6 pupils to attend a launch presentation and workshop on the following dates:

Year 2 Parents à Wednesday 29th November 2023, 9.00-10.00

Year 6 Parents – Wednesday 4th December 2023, 9.00-10.00

During each launch session, a presentation will take place in which the aims and actions of the National Numeracy Parental Engagement Project will be explained. After this, parents will be invited into their child’s class to sit alongside them and have a go at some maths home-learning together. And, of course, a warm drink and mid-morning biscuits will be on hand!

Please note that these two year-group-specific launch events are different to our National Numeracy Workshop event, which we will be hosting on Wednesday 22nd with our Coffee Morning. This is open to all parents.

We hope to engage and welcome as many Year 2 and Year 6 parents as possible to the above two events. At BRW, we share your goal as a parent of supporting your child to achieve a confident level of numeracy that will lead to success. This project aims to achieve exactly this!

Please sign up to attend your event by emailing/phoning/going into the school office in person.

As a pre-cursor to the launches, National Numeracy is keen to hear from parents about their feelings and thoughts around maths. As such, we would like to you spend ten minutes completing the survey found on the link/QR code below. Thank you to those parents who were able to complete the survey at their parent consultations. If you were unable to, as a parent/carer of a child in Year 2/Year 6, we greatly encourage and appreciate your participation to make sure your views are heard and to better support our pupils’ attitudes to maths!

Please access the initial survey via this link or QR code:

Best wishes,

Mrs C Hautenne
