Dear Mr Beech,
I am writing to thank you for inviting eight Nailsworth pupils to take part in GECKO maths and watch your class do 24. All year 6 Grange pupils were very kind and made sure we were having fun.
Firstly, I enjoyed learning new techniques to improve my maths and trying different level maths chalenges. Also, explaining my maths to Grange pupils helped especially for some SAT's questions.
Overall, your class were very supportive and helped at all times when needed. Watching, 24 and doing it was also fun trying to work out the answer faster than your class.
Finally, I would like to thank you once more for an enjoyable morning. I hope to start GECKO maths at our school in the future. I think all year 6 pupils will find it useful.

Hi Chris & Julie
Thank you both so much for yesterday! The children loved exploring and trying out new activities they haven't done before. All the way back to school I had "Emily can you take us back again next week". I know it was very beneficial for them and I 100% think it would be something the school would look into purchasing more regular sessions in the future (once prices were confirmed from your Head).
I am going to propose this idea to the Head of Milestones, alongside the photos of yesterdays session, however I know she will want to see that it would be beneficial for other classes as well in order for it to be a possibility for the future. I was wondering if we could set up another session this term (if possible) for a different class in order to gain another teachers perspective on the session to back up my views when we propose this idea to the Head.
Hopefully this is possible.
If you would like to visit the school please feel free to get in touch anytime.
Thank you again.
Look forward to hearing from you.
