In Mathematics, students learn to use concepts about Number, Space, Measurement and Chance and Data. They use mathematical ways of representing patterns and relationships, to describe, interpret and reason about their social and physical world.
Mathematics plays a key role in the development of students’ numeracy and assists learning across the curriculum.
Aranmore Catholic Primary has a whole-school approach to teaching Mathematics and currently utilises the Maths Plus and Mathletics programmes which align with the Australian Curriculum.
The focus for Pre-Kindy and Kindergarten children is to develop:
- a love of numbers
- an ability to recognize and create patterns
- awareness of measurement, size and shape
- sorting, matching, ordering and counting
- their use of materials flexibly and imaginatively
- an ability to use mathematics in real situations
- their questioning, estimating and predicting skills.
Children in Pre-Primary learn vital early numeracy skills through hands-on and interactive learning experiences with a focus on developing the children’s knowledge, understanding and skills in this area.
