We are here for the students

Kingswood Primary has flexible teaching spaces allowing us to design a curriculum that meets the needs of the 3rd millennium learners.

Numeracy

At Kingswood Primary School we encourage our students to believe that there is a mathematician in all of us. We value lifeworthy learning which promotes the use of Habits Of Mind and thinking strategies in order to solve a range of real world problems.

Our Mathematics program is based on the Victorian Curriculum and we will begin reporting against it in 2017. The teaching and learning focuses on developing understanding, fluency, reasoning, modelling and problem-solving in number, measurement and geometry, and

statistics and probability.

We have developed a consistent school wide lesson structure:

Number       Short maths game/activity to tune in to mathematical thinking.

Fluency          

Launch     Explicit teaching of concept or skill.

Discover     Time for children to explore concept/skill independently or in a small group through problem solving activities.

Summarise     An opportunity to reflect on our learning, to summarise what we have learnt, what was difficult or what we might do next time.
