Welcome back to Term 3!

To our Victorian followers - we hope you have had a fantastic start to the term and have settled back into your school routines!
This term we will endeavour to post a broad range of topics. We will share resources we have created, along with a range of Maths tips & tricks.
Games are often a fantastic way to consolidate learning - students are easily engaged and are able to practice the skills you have taught.
Many games involve the use of dice - this can be noisy and these small objects can 'accidently' end up in all sorts of locations around your classroom!
Our tip today...
invest in a roll of woven rubber matting (often used in kitched drawers) and cut it into squares/rectangles etc approximately the size of an A4 sheet of paper.
When using dice - lay these mats on the table and all dice rolls must be done on these.
If the dice rolls off of the mat - they miss a turn.
You will be amazed at how much noise this cuts down! It also ensures the game is played in a defined space.
If you have anything to share or would like us to cover a specific area of Mathematics - please let us know at...
