Numeracy

The Northern Ireland Curriculum states:

 

Numeracy is the development and application of mathematics across the curriculum and in real life situations. Skills in numeracy should help children to make informed and responsible choices and decisions throughout their lives.

 

Throughout primary school, children should engage in a wide range of purposeful activities which should involve them in different modes of mathematical learning, including playing, exploring and investigating, doing and observing, talking and listening, asking questions, reflecting, drafting, reading and recording.

 

In Victoria Primary School we work hard to achieve the expectations of numeracy teaching outlined by the Curriculum. 

 

Through out the school our pupils have the opportunity to engage in a wide variety of activities, helping to reinforce and build on their learning, both independently and co- operatively.

 

We recognise the importance and value of mental maths and spend time supporting pupils' learning and development of strategies.

 

They take an active role in their own learning participating in practical activities, requiring problem solving and decision making.

Mathletics 

 

Mathletics is a targeted, rewarding and captivating online learning resource, which is aligned to curriculum standards. Your child has take-home access to Mathletics – they simply sign in with their school username and password using any compatible computer or mobile device.


The extra Mathletics practice at home can make all the difference to your child’s progress. Encourage them to
achieve a weekly target of 1000 points to earn a certificate, building through bronze, silver and gold across the
school year. Go for gold!
