TEACHERS SPEND ALL DAY ON SATURDAY LEARNING ABOUT MATHS!!
Last Saturday May 28th, Emma Walsh (Year 4), Stacey Powell (Year F) and Debra Armstrong (Numeracy Coach) spent the day at ACU (Australian Catholic University) in the city at a Professional Learning day on mathematics. These three teachers split up and attended 3 separate seminars.
Ms Powell could not stop talking about beads, counting and number sense! I guess we are going to see some new initiatives in the Early Years implementing what she has learnt. Ms Walsh was all enthusiastic about differentiation and some new ideas that she thought could be shared with all year levels and Ms Armstrong was enlightened with some new ideas she learnt relating to fractions.
These three teachers will share their knowledge with the whole staff in a maths professional development night next term which will be a real benefit for all and we thank these staff members for giving up their weekend to learn about and develop mathematics at Whittlesea Primary School.
