Throughout 2019, we are endeavouring to further embed Michael Ymer’s approach to all Mathematics learning. We are following his scope and sequence, which encourages the integration of at least two of the three Mathematics strands per Maths session. This is achieved through contextualising concepts into real world stories such as shopping, building a garden bed or conducting a campaign to decide on lunchtime clubs.
In Term 2 your children will be learning the following:
Rule, repeating pattern, repeating chink, greater than, less than, equal to, column, tally, quarter past, quarter to, whole number, tenths, hundredths, tens of thousands, thousands, hundreds, tens, ones, addend, sum, difference, product, repetition, inverse operation, algorithm, right angle, degrees, preferred, popular, currency, change, dollars, cents, decimal
Probable, pie graph, decimal fraction, common fraction, division, remainder, seconds, minutes, hours, multiplication, sharing, transformation, flip, reflect, slide, translate, turn, rotate, tessellate, centimeter, metre, kilometre, millilitres, litres, kilolitres, grams, kilograms, tonne, prime, composite, divisibility, multiple, factor, factor tree, squared, cubed, BODMAS, likely, possible, impossible, percentage, equivalent, strategy, algorithm.
Maths Games Night, May 8th
Was an opportunity for parents/ guardians to experience games students play during their Maths sessions. The games encourage opportunities for students to develop their mental computational strategies. All you require are a deck of cards, dice, paper and pencil.Click here to view the presentation. Testimonies
On behalf of the parents, a big thank you to Pauline and the team for organising and hosting the Maths Games Night on Wednesday. It was very informative and a lot of fun! As parents, we don't always know what our kids are learning at school and how to support/extend their learning at home, so it was great to get some ideas of different ways to do this in Maths. Thank you to all the teachers for the time and effort that you put in, we really appreciate it :)
Thank you to the staff who helped put together the Maths Games night for parents.
I learnt so much from the information given, in a fun and friendly environment.
It opened my mind to other ways of having fun with the kids while helping them learn different mathematical equations.
NAPLAN online Numeracy test
All year three and five students will partake in an online numeracy test. As it is online, students now have the option to have the question read to them. As such, we ask that all students participating bring their headsets/earphones to school.
Michael Ymer will be coming in June 6th and 7th to observe and give feedback to teachers. His expertise is valuable in developing the capacity of teachers to deliver learning experiences, which encourage greater student engagement and richer learning opportunities.
