PARENTS have been getting involved with lessons at a Royston school.
Roman Way First School recently held a curriculum week, which saw pupils invite their parents to come into school and participate in lessons from across the curriculum.
Headteacher Emma Chapman said: "We provided activities in a variety of subjects based on a theme, to help to show parents a little bit about our theme-based curriculum and how we teach through cross-curricular links.
"There has been a lot of positive feedback from children, parents and staff. Parents and children have enjoyed the experience and the chance to work together on the variety of activities."
