Marvellous Maths Morning!

Thank you to all those who came to our Marvellous Maths Morning on Wednesday. We had over 70 people attend.

Thank you also to all the children and staff who worked so hard to make the morning such a success.

As always, any feedback would be greatly appreciated –

What were the successes of the morning?

What could we do better?

Would a maths afternoon be something that people would like to have?

Here are just some of the photographs from the morning. Thank you to Jenny for taking them!

Basic Facts Multiplication Practise Sheets

A few parents have asked for examples of the  knowledge practise sheets that the children do every Friday.

I have adapted the multiplication sheets and they can be found  below.

Remember to practise them over and over again as the children have to get at least 18 out of 20 in a minute.

Also, the sheets that the children will get on Fridays will be different!

Happy practising!

Thank You!

We would like to thank all the parents who were able to come to our information sessions regarding our approach to Numeracy. We hope that you found it informative. We certainly valued the comments and questions posed.

The presentation can be found on the New Zealand Maths page. I have just removed slides which showed clips of children.

As was mentioned at the meeting, next term we will invite parents into the classrooms to see how our approach works, hold workshops and send out a booklet detailing how you can support your child at home.

Watch this space!
