Parents return to maths classes at Lympstone school
PARENTS were busy number crunching with their children at a maths workshop held at Lympstone Primary School last week.
Nikki Clarke, maths coordinator at the school, organised the workshop to give parents the opportunity to see how the subject is taught compared with when they were young.
It was also organised to enable them to support their children with maths at home.
Tony Priest, head teacher at Lympstone Primary, said: “It was certainly an eye-opener for some of the parents, I think!
“In some of the cases, I think the children could work out problems better than the adults.
