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!

This post mentions a New Zealand Maths page but this main maths blog seems to be the only one I can find. How do I get to the New Zealand maths blog? I understand there is a further session on New Zealand maths this week? Where do I find the details on this?
