Students at St Patrick's will participate in a comprehensive numeracy program every day. We support and challenge our students to engage in the three Victorian Curriculum Mathematics strands of Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry and Statistics and Probability. During numeracy sessions students participate in whole class focus sessions, develop mental computation strategies, experience small group rotation activities and teacher lead sessions and complete tasks tailored to their individual learning needs. At the end of each numeracy lesson formative feedback is provided to students via processes of peer led discussions or teacher elaboration to consolidate the learning focus and to redress any misconceptions.Common Formative Assessments (CFATs) are designed collaboratively and inform teachers of a student’s knowledge and skill. This data is used to plan the learning cycle to best meet the needs of the students, individually, and across the cohort.
