Parents found themselves the ones paying attention to teacher when Ladybird
Class at Windmill Primary School played host to a Stay and Play session.
Mums and Dads were invited into the classroom for the morning to be shown
round by the children and given a taste of what they get up to every day in
the classroom – and they also had the chance to take part in some activities
and try their hand at the children’s lessons.
Class teacher Miss Demi St Clair said it was an enjoyable morning for the
children – and an important one for the parents. “Parents are always keen to
find out what’s going on in the classroom, and what their children are
getting up to – and what better way than to come in and see them at it,” she
said. “The children take obvious pride in showing what they can do, and it
really builds a connection between their homes lives and their school lives.
“The feedback we’ve had so far from both children and parents has been
extremely positive. It’s a really useful activity in which to take part.”
