Each class at Parktone completes at least 300 minutes of Mathematics lessons per week.
They begin with a short tune-in activity or number-based fluency game, followed by an explanation of the learning intention and explicit teaching of relevant mathematical concepts as detailed by the Victorian Curriculum.
Learning activities are hands-on and student focused, based on real-life maths rather than worksheets, and include independent work, or work in like or mixed ability groups.
Throughout learning activities students put what they have been taught through the explicit teaching in to practise.
Lessons are concluded with some reflective practise, where students talk about their learning throughout the lesson, share any misconceptions, and discuss how the learning intention has been met.
