Term 1

In Numeracy this term we will be focusing on students basic facts and then moving into addition and subtraction.  The teachers will focus on the strategies students can employ when facing word problems.  We teach a range of strategies so that all students can be catered for as we have found that one strategy can work well for some students and another strategy can work well for other students.

All students have an account for Mathletics which is a great online learning tool. Students can work through the NZ Maths Curriculum in a variety of ways including videos, tutorials, question sets and games. Teachers set specific tasks, depending on the students level and what they are working on in class. Students earn points for their efforts and at the end of the year medals are awarded to the highest point holders.

Here the Basic Facts Bricks that tests students basic mathematics skills.
