Students are actively engaged in one hour of Mathematics each day. During this time students are involved in learning activities at their point of need, and skills are explicitly taught in Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, and Statistics and Probability, as outlined in the Victorian Curriculum. The children at Trinity Catholic School have opportunities to learn in a variety of ways – in small targeted focus groups, whole class learning, or one to one instruction with the classroom teacher or learning support officer, as needed. Teachers monitor students learning in an ongoing way and this formative assessment enables teachers to plan for future learning. Students participate in a pre and post test for each new topic in mathematics so that teachers can monitor growth and progress and plan for students individual learning needs.
Learning Sprints is a process we adopt across the school in Numeracy, which enables teachers to target student learning needs and strives to improve teacher practice. Students are given ongoing feedback about their learning.
At Trinity Primary School we use a variety of resources and a variety of assessment tools to plan for teaching and learning and the teachers are involved in ongoing professional learning so that they are up to date with current research and best practice in the teaching of numeracy.
Digital technologies, in particular coding, are embedded throughout the numeracy learning activities as outlined in the Victorian Curriculum.
Home learning activities relate to the current learning in the classroom related to Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, and Statistics and Probability. All parents have access to Google Classroom and Seesaw to be able to access student learning in numeracy.
