It was back to school for mothers as pupils showed their parents what life in the classroom is really like.
Parkside Primary School, in Borehamwood, opened its doors to mothers, aunts, grandmothers and sisters who all joined their children for a variety of activity sessions.
They got stuck into craft activities, biscuit decorating, making Mother’s Day cards and playing games throughout the day.
Headteacher Julie Muncey said the day aims to extend the feeling of community within the school by involving the parents in their child’s education.
She said: “We had a fantastic day celebrating our Bring Mum to School Day. This is the seventh year of the event and it has continued to grow from strength to strength.
“Children and staff love having their mums, aunties, sisters and grandmothers in school - it is an excellent opportunity to share learning experiences and have lots of fun at the same time.”
Louise Hatton, who has two children at the school, said: “It’s nice to come in and get to know the teachers and let them know you support them.
“They work so hard at organising the events and it’s nice to interact with the children.
“I’ve really enjoyed it, it’s been lots of fun, the children were so excited and it’s been nice to see them so enthusiastic all joining in very happy. They’ve been immaculately behaved.”
Not wishing them to be left out, dads will get their turn before Father’s Day on Sunday, June 15.
