On Tuesday 26th July, Ms Rhodes and Ms Filacouridis lead our staff in Teacher Professional Learning in the area of Numeracy. We examined the importance of developing place value knowledge to assist our students in gaining a deeper understanding of number concepts. We also explored how patterns in counting, grouping of tens and the position of digits is related to understanding the base ten structure of our numeration system. Teachers were involved in updating student performance data in our CAP (Celebrating Students’ Achievement and Performance) room and analysing the data to inform their practice. Teachers shared a repertoire of instructional strategies and are developing goal setting tools to assist our students to take ownership of their learning in numeracy.
