The St Mary’s numeracy program aims to provide children with a variety of mathematical experiences that are both enjoyable and challenging. We aim to give the children confidence to extend their understandings and to explore real life maths concepts in a non-threatening environment.
At the end of each year classroom teachers conduct a numeracy interview with individual students.
This data shows the student’s growth in numeracy and is also used at the start of the following year to know where each student is situated in their understanding and knowledge of mathematical concepts.
The ongoing collection of data throughout the year drives daily teaching.
