Maths at School of the Resurrection

Much of maths is all about being able to spot the patterns. To boost our maths and help build confidence, we have introduced several programmes:

Big Maths has been introduced to support children in making number connections and develop their speed in making calculations.

Abacus Maths is now providing the foundation of our curriculum across the school to further enforce consistency across the year levels and fabulous homework activities to solidify learning from the classroom.

Solve It Day happens in every classroom once a week to provide all children with opportunities to engage in guided logical reasoning activities and problem solving.

Check out our Maths Policy here to find out further information.
