Numeracy

Numeracy

At St Brigid’s Primary School our aim is to ensure children progress in numeracy through engaging and hands on learning experiences. Our programs are based on the WA Curriculum and the Early Years Learning Framework.

Our Numeracy blocks are structured to allow the teacher to work at a whole class, small group and individual level, enabling the teacher to cater for the needs of the children in their class.

Numeracy lessons are designed to develop the knowledge and skills to use Mathematics confidently across all learning areas at school and in their everyday life. This is done through:

  • Engaging and hands on lessons using concrete materials
  • Upskilling staff to confidently deliver the Mathematics curriculum
  • A focus on mathematical vocabulary to support all learners
  • Meaningful lessons that link to ‘real life’ examples
  • Promoting children to take risks and develop a growth mindset towards Mathematics
  • Develop a variety of problem-solving skills

Data is collected to support the learning through ongoing assessments throughout the year, one on one assessments (MAI), NAPLAN data, standardised tests, class tasks, informal assessments and teacher judgement. The school also offers Extending Mathematical Understanding (EMU), an intervention program for mathematically at-risk children in the early years.
