Parents Share Science Classes With Children

Kelly Bevers and her son Charlie Beevers enjoy the Shared Learning Science lesson with Maisie Carter (Year 4) at Pilgrim Academy.


Parents and relatives got stuck into Science classes when they visited Pilgrim Academy for a shared learning event.

The Immingham Academy, which is part of Tollbar Multi Academy Trust, invited parents into school to see first hand the projects their children are working on.

Kelly Bevers joined in with son Charlie’s experiments. She said: "It is nice to get involved and to see him at school."

Teacher Jordan Gibbon included parents in his interactive experiments with the pupils. Year 4 Teacher Emily Frankish said: "In our Science lesson we separated materials using magnets to see the reactions. It was nice to see how the parents and children worked together."

Christine Lacey, Executive Principal of Pilgrim Academy, said: "We are always happy to invite parents and carers into school to work with their children. It benefits both sides to be able to see and understand what they are working on."


Pilgrim Academy Teacher Jordan Gibbon conducts an experiment using children and their relatives. They are: (l-r) Bozhidar Georgiev and Mum Klimentina Georgieva, Jake Swift and Aunt Jodie Marks and Lily King and Mum Hannah King.
