Numeracy


Numeracy is a big focus at Kinglake West Primary School. Our classroom teachers plan for engaging and hands-on lessons that cover all areas of the Victorian Numeracy Curriculum (Number & Algebra, Measurement & Geometry and Statistics & Probability). A high emphasis is placed on number fluency and mental computation skills and we love to get our students excited about learning new strategies to help them solve real world mathematical problems.

 

Numeracy Extension

At Kinglake West PS we have many students who are excelling in math and we are lucky enough to be able to support and extend these students in lots of different ways including:

  • small group numeracy extension programs
  • participation in the Australian Mathematics Trust 4 week maths challenge (grades 3-6)
  • Australian Mathematics Competition

Numeracy Intervention

At Kinglake West PS we are lucky enough to be able to offer small group Numeracy Intervention 4 mornings a week for students requiring a little extra support. Mrs Hawke runs an amazing program and the students selected certainly gain a lot of confidence and skill from the time they spend in the program.
