WOW! WOW! WOW! What a week it has been at Villa as we have been celebrating all things to do with Maths. We began the with some special guest speakers (our parents) who visited classes to share how maths is all around us and we welcomed Mr Adam Spencer who worked with some children to get them thinking mathematically. On Wednesday our school was in disguise with a number of human calculators, clocks, numbers, dice and dollars coming through the gates of Villa to learn for the day. It was exciting to engage in many problem solving tasks as we entered into the 'World of Maths' activities presented by Mr Ed. Finally all children have had the wonderful opportunity of visiting other classes to discover what they are learning as part of Mathematics lessons. Congratulations to the staff, children and parent helpers who worked hard to make the week such a success. Many thanks to Mrs Keevers, Mrs McCarthy and Mr Korkor for their contribution and planning and a special thank you to Mrs Healy and Mrs Zaiter who coordinated the week.
