PUPILS got to show off their skills with numbers when parents were invited into the classroom.

Youngsters in Class 1 at St William’s RCVA School, in Trimdon Village, have been learning all about numbers by using a range of different fun methods.

The school opened its doors to parents and other loved ones to give them a chance to learn more about how children spend their school day and give them ideas of how to continue their learning at home.

The youngsters used clocks, games like skittles and dominoes and various painting and counting games to improve their use of numbers.

Class 1 teacher Lisa Wade said the open afternoon was well attended and was aimed to illustrate the importance of parents being the first educators of their children.

She added: “It’s about building partnership with parents and getting them to come into the classroom and becoming involved with children’s learning.

“Working in partnership with parents is a key priority for our school and it is about them coming into school and giving them ideas of things that they can do with children at home.”
