At Forestdale we continually run a series of excellent, fun and informative parent workshops throughout the year.
Working Together is a very popular style of workshop for parents. We wanted to move away from more traditional parent meetings where information was just relayed to parents/ carers. Our parents now have the unique opportunity to visit their child’s classroom and take part in fun learning activities, alongside their child, under the guidance and direction of the teacher. We even offer a sausage breakfast and teas/coffees during the break. Please click on the classes below to see the flipcharts.
Reception Phonic and Maths Workshop
Weekly Wednesday Open Mornings in Reception
Parents of reception children are invited into their child’s classrooms every Wednesday morning from 8.45- 9.05. This is a fantastic opportunity for parents to see what the children have been learning that week as well as spending quality learning time with their child. The children get to choose an activity to do with their parents and the teachers offer support as and when it is needed.
We take safeguarding children when online extremely seriously. Although we teach children strategies and ways to stay safe online in school, we offer support to parents in keeping children safe at home online.
