Numeracy Day - 14th July

We are excited to announce that our school community will be celebrating Numeracy Day early next term on Thursday, July 14.

Although not formally celebrated in Australia (yet!), we have decided to take the UK’s lead in celebrating the significant part that numbers play in our daily lives. This exciting event supports our focus of strengthening Mathematics teaching and learning through our school annual improvement plan.

Students and teachers have been invited to participate in Numeracy Day through the following activities:

  • Outdoor Maths learning
  • Maths inquiry tasks and open-ended Maths activities
  • SMOTC Number Heroes competition
  • Fancy dress – favourite number/s or Maths item costume

Families are also encouraged to participate in this special celebration through engagement with following resources:

At SMOTC we love learning, and we look forward to celebrating Numeracy Day together. Please watch this space for future updates on National Science Week in August and International Literacy Day and Book Week celebrations in September.
