As you know, we have been working on Problem Solving in Numeracy as part of the school self-evaluation process. We have noticed an excellent improvement in children’s problem solving abilities over the past year. Thank you for your support.
We are now moving forward to include looking at the writing in our school, while still maintaining the wonderful work completed on Problem Solving. Please see the summary document below for ideas of how you can support us, and your child’s learning.
