Mathematics

At St Vincent's One hour Numeracy Blocks are incorporated into the classroom timetable four times a week. This time is wholly devoted to improve and challenge students numeracy skills. Through the structure of the Numeracy Block, students are provided with the opportunity to work as a whole class and in small groups with similar needs as they are challenged to apply and discuss numeracy strategies.

During the Numeracy Block explicit teaching and learning including; Whole class, Guided maths groups and Independent practice, takes place.
