Curriculum - Mathematics

This year, Tom Price Primary School is implementing the award winning F-6 maths program called Stepping Stones. It is a research-based program that provides teachers with instructed lessons which are developmentally-appropriate and are linked directly to the Australian Curriculum. Teachers use a hands-on approach to learning which helps to create students who learn how to think, rather than what to think. Stepping Stones also provides access to problem solving tasks, investigations, big books, differentiated activities and a variety of digital tools and games to engage the students. 

Every lesson includes a Warm-up, Tuning in, Whole Class Explicit Teaching, Guided/Independent work and Reflection component. Within this block, students are also exposed to basic facts and are taught mental computation strategies. Vocabulary and common language across the school is also a focus at Tom Price Primary School.
