At Mordialloc Beach Primary School, we aim to deliver highly engaging and relevant numeracy lessons. Our lessons are sequenced carefully to continually build on prior knowledge and teach students at their point of need. A wide variety of hands-on and differentiated activities are used in the classroom to promote shared thinking, problem solving and mental strategies. Direct instruction in provided through whole class and small group, guided lessons.
MATH COACH Our leading teacher Mr. Tim Green is a specialist numeracy teacher who provides intervention programs in the early years (Foundation to Year 2). Mr. Green also provides skills development and curriculum guidance to teachers across the school.
ESSENTIAL ASSESSMENT We use a numeracy curriculum program called Essential Assessment in the classroom and for homework. It provides targeted syllabus activities and assessment to complement our numeracy planning and teaching. Essential Assessment is also an online program (for Year 3-6 students), allowing students to access individually tailored numeracy activities online.
