Maths

Every student at Porepunkah engages in a minimum of four one hour maths lessons each week. The structure of the numeracy block is based on the Hume Region ‘Effective Numeracy Lesson Structure Primary Classroom’ placemat of number fluency task, mini lesson, independent/group learning and reflection/summary. Teachers develop and implement differentiated programs, targeting students’ immediate point of need linking to the AusVels curriculum requirements for the appropriate Year Levels.

 Our agreed practices are:

A written Learning goal and success criteria that indicates what learning tasks students will complete to be successful in attaining the Learning Goal for that session.

 

  

Number Fluency - Individualised warm-up and practise time for strategies. Tasks are matched to students’ learning needs and engaging for the learner.

   

Mini Lesson - Explicit teaching that is teacher directed to whole class. Written Learning Goal and Success Criteria, indicates what learning tasks students will complete to be successful in attaining the Learning Goal for that session.

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Independent/Group Learning - Extensive ‘student activity/work time’ and the use of differentiated tools (manipulatives or visual supports) provide support to help students learning while encouraged to work mentally.

 

  

       

 

 

 

 

 

Reflection/Summary - Provides opportunity for students to discuss, explain, model and share their findings and new knowledge to support thinking of strategies they have used.
