Developing numeracy by using real world situations helps children to understand mathematical concepts and explain them.

Curriculum Focus

Number and Algebra

Students recognised, represented ordered and compared numbers to a thousand. They made connections between addition and subtraction and developed efficient mental and written computation strategies. Students focused on the mathematical language used in word problems and used a range of effective strategies to solve these.

Measurement and Geometry

Students identified and categorised the properties of two dimensional shapes. They investigated the effect of flip, slide and turn on objects and interpreted simple maps of familiar locations. They created maps and followed simple directions to move from one point to another.

Statistics and Probability

Students collect data from relevant questions to create lists, tables and picture graphs with and without the use of digital technology. They interpret data in context. Students use everyday language to describe outcomes of familiar events.
