Every class actively participates each year, engaging in interesting and thought provoking activities that enable them to see maths as an enjoyable activity that has relevance to their lives. Teachers use the environment as they complete various activities, exploring capacity, shapes, fractions and patterns, and solving maths problems based on their findings.
The children also engage in number fan games, such as match stick puzzles, tessellations with magsnaps, interactive whiteboard games, making shapes with their bodies. There are competitions and maths is integrated into other areas of the curriculum.
