Daily Maths lessons provide students with a range of activities that are:

  • Interactive
  • Engaging
  • Challenging
  • Interesting
  • Hands on
  • Fun

A range of strategies and programs are used to support student learning.  These include:

  • RoleM
  • SIgnpost Maths
  • Internet-based programs, such as Study Ladder and Sumdog
  • I-pad applications


The development of mathematical strategies are the focus of all Numeracy lessons to better equip students when tackling mathematical problems. These include:

  • Doubling
  • tens facts
  • Near doubling
  • fact families
  • Bridging to 10
  • skip counting
  • Subitising (immediate recognition of a small number of items in a group)

Overall, the Numeracy Program at St Mary’s School provides graded and sequenced activities that complement concepts taught in the classroom. Teachers aim to develop the talents and capabilities of all students by providing a challenging curriculum that is comprehensive, balanced and student-centred.
