Students at Sherbourne participate in mathematics classes for one session each day. Students at learn in a variety of settings including like-ability and mixed-ability groups, as well as whole-class and individualised tasks. These groupings are informed by regular formal and informal assessments which are completed against the Victorian Curriculum.
Teachers at Sherbourne Primary School strive to ensure that the mathematics program meets the needs of individual students, is fun, positive and based in real-life contexts. Students have access to a variety of physical and electronic resources to support their learning, using hands-on materials, games and mental strategies.
Sherbourne students set learning goals in collaboration with their teachers to achieve learning targets based on what they already know, and what they understand they need to achieve. We believe that students are motivated to learn when they know their own abilities and understand the next steps to success.
