Kia Ora Parents/Caregivers,
Most of you will be aware that pupils in Rooms 3 – 5 take part in a Maths Interchange programme. We have been doing this successfully for a number of years.
Interchange involves looking at all the pupil’s Maths Stages and grouping them accordingly. This means that children who are at the same/similar Maths stage work together at a pace which is more intensive and more productive than working in a class where there may be 3, 4 or 5 different Maths stages.
To ensure that we group the children correctly we use the latest up-to-date Maths attainment data provided by our Overall Teacher Judgements (OTJs), and assessments. We review this data each term. This enables us to move children between classes if appropriate, ensuring that the child’s learning needs are being met.
At the beginning of Term 2 there will be 4 class teachers able to offer Maths interchange :
This puts us in a luxurious position of offering four Maths classes with smaller numbers of children in each. Please note that your child may have a different Maths teacher than he/she had in Term 1. Please be assured that your child is with his/her correct Maths grouping and that his/her Maths needs will be met.
Should you have any concerns or wish to discuss this further please do not hesitate to talk with either myself or your child’s class teacher.
