Easter Holidays!

First term has really flown by and here we are - it's nearly Easter!
Our students have completed a broad range of mathematical work and are really starting to show off their new skills and thinking.
In Australia, our students start school when they are around 5 years of age. Some start with quite alot of knowledge and some with a little.
One of our first jobs (after settling them into the routines of school of course!) is to find out what they know about numbers. Not just their ability to count, but to match collections, recognise and start to write numerals, and subitise a small numer of objects.
To assist us with this, a set of 0 - 20 Mix and Match cards will be added to our stores soon.
Two sets will be included (one with 10's frames and one with animal pictures).
In the meantime, we are going to take a short break over Easter and return at the start of Term 2.
We hope you enjoy this special time with family friends!
