We had lots of parents, carers and grandparents in school this week for the two Maths-themed F2 Inspire events. Thank you to those who were able to attend. We hope you enjoyed working in school with your child and went away with a little more knowledge about how your child learns at Strawberry Fields.
Here is a selection of the comments given on the feedback forms:
