Meet the Teacher... help!

Discussion in 'Primary' started by freshoutofschool, Sep 7, 2011.

  1. Hey!

    I am an NQT in a Yr 5 class and have a 30min meet the Teacher afternoon next week. Was wondering what people would recomend to talk about and how to approach it with the parents... Any tips, advice, suggestions would be much appreciated!

    Have you spoken to other members of staff about how they organise it? Is it a formal presentation type meeting with q and a afterwards or an informal drop in and chat?
  3. I always talk about the numeracy calculation strategy particularkly the numberlines section as this is alien to many parents.
    I tell them about the topics we will be learning.
    When homework will be given out.
    When PE is needed.
    Reading with the children - choosing interesting literature etc
  4. And whatever you do/say they'll still all go away and say snarky things about how some aspect of your very existence doesn't meet what they demand anyway.
