Mapping at Mullum

Grade 2 students have been investigating mapping in their maths sessions and communities during Inquiry time.


They made a list of vocabulary that described the location of objects and gave directions to a blindfolded partner using these words.


With a partner they studied maps of Ringwood to find familiar locations in our community.


Using playing cards as a game board, they wrote directional instructions for someone to follow to move one character to its destination.


This activity is part of the digital technologies and is ‘unplugged’ programing ie. It’s done without a computer.

Grade 3 students tackle Crosses

A Maths problem kept us thinking for quite a while in Grade 3.  


It was called CROSSES.


We used the numbers 1-9 and arranged them in a cross, that part was easy.


The challenge was to have the numbers in the horizontal arm add to the same amount as the numbers in the vertical arm. 


We found several solutions, but not all of  the solutions.


We went on to examine what occurred in every solution.


Try it and see what you find.

Foundation students now well settled

Our Foundation students have started their school year with bright smiles!


They are excited to learn and have made new friends already.


We have started looking at letters and sounds, using our word of the week and the letters in our names. 


We are learning to write our name clearly and count to 10 confidently.
