Dougie Souter, Principal, St Georges Road Primary School speaking to
camera

AUDIO:

Substantial growth in student achievement in maths in 2009 can be
attributed to some of the structures that we put in place, including
building a leadership model where all teachers are leaders of curriculum
areas with a high priority in literacy and numeracy.

Vivian New, Numeracy Leader / Classroom Teacher, St Georges Road
Primary School speaking to camera

AUDIO:

As the numeracy leader in the 5/6 team, I have attended in 2009 twice a
term a DEEWR professional development with a neighbourhood
curriculum, and in 2010 it was once a term, and my job is to then bring it
back to the team of grade 5/6 teachers and share the knowledge that I’ve
learned.

Ceil Morris, Network Improvement Coordinator, Hume region

AUDIO:

The Hume region has an approach for literacy and numeracy and we call
it the ‘Common Curriculum.’ The numeracy common curriculum is the way
that we see numeracy across the board, and it talks about a whole
network approach across the Hume region, and getting teachers to see
themselves in the big picture. What does a good classroom look like?
What does a good lesson look like? How do we personalise that education
for all of our students and make it real?

Vivian New, Numeracy Leader / Classroom Teacher, St Georges Road
Primary School speaking to camera

AUDIO:

The PD that we’ve been having with John Munroe in literacy has carried
over to the numeracy. We’ve found in particular getting knowledge ready,
we’ve been able to use that and say to the students, ‘Well, what’s this
problem about?’

AUDIO:

The schools also invested significantly in numeracy intervention
throughout 2009 and 2010, and that’s been specifically focussed at
finding the point of need for the students.

Sue Woodall, Assessment / Reporting Coordinator, St Georges Road
Primary School speaking to camera

AUDIO:

We analyse the data in relation to the state and structure activities that
will help our students meet their needs, so that they can perform as we
would like them to perform. Our case study students are five students
that we each have in our classes, and we focus on them in particular, but
at the same time focussing on all our other students, and we discuss
these children at our PLTs – how they're progressing towards their goals.

Ros Hosa, Numeracy Coordinator, St Georges Road Primary School
speaking to camera

AUDIO:

We decided that there was a lot more work needing to be done on
developing mathematical language and we’ve done that initially in the
junior grades, particularly the prep grade, where we’re working with a lot
of Boehm concepts, and others, and applying them to the different
dimensions of maths and can both verbalise them and demonstrate what
they mean.

VIDEO:

Jan Fordyce, ESL Transition Officer, St Georges Road Primary School
speaking to camera

AUDIO:

I also, with the prep groups, work on the numeracy fluency and the
Boehm concepts, which are things like right and left, forwards and
backwards, big and little, fast and slow, all those sorts of things. And we
do a lot of activities, fun activities, where they can use those concepts
and get familiar with them. Koori, refugee and ESL children get supported
in the classrooms. There’s a Wannik program happening which is a
literacy and numeracy support in small groups in the classroom, and then
in my role with the ESL children, I support them by building their
confidence by doing lots of activities with them.

Melissa Houlihan, Assistant Principal, St Georges Road Primary School
speaking to camera

AUDIO:

There’s a parent engagement strategy that we have, called the Family
Liaison Officers, and they’re part of the school neighbourhood structure as
well, so we’ve got an Arabic family liaison officer, a Koori family liaison
officer and also an Afghani family liaison officer, so together they work in
our three schools. We’ve used them to support parents coming into the
school at prep orientation. So we have a numeracy targeted family
information session where we have our numeracy leader talking to the
parents about the fundamental skills that they can be practicing at home
before they get to school, and those family liaison officers are supporting
the parents to understand what’s happening in their own language, and to
also go home and to implement some of those strategies. The
neighbourhood school partnership includes Gowrie Street Primary School,
Wilmot Road Primary School and ourselves. The neighbourhood school

partnerships support the school, in terms of the numeracy leaders across
our school getting together with the two other schools. That allows the
middle level leaders to develop their capacity in terms of what they’re
delivering in their classroom and also how they’re supporting their other
classroom teachers at a PLT level. They’re able to look at the
neighbourhood curriculum documents and analyse what’s been done so
far and making sure that we are targeting the kids at the right level, and
looking at the developmental framework and where we are heading to
next.

Andrew King, P-2 Numeracy Coordinator / Grade 2 Teacher, St Georges
Road Primary School speaking to camera

AUDIO:

I’d say that the student’s current attitudes have come a long way since
the start of the year. In particular we are starting all our lessons now with
fluency tasks, which is designed to engage a student at their point of
need. I feel that they’ve come a long way and the data has shown that
these kids, through these engaging lessons and through their desire to
learn maths and knowing that they are capable.
