We have been delighted to welcome Ms Brewer back to Milton this week. As many of you know, Ms Brewer is currently working very hard on developing the Numeracy curriculum for the Highland Council and we are so lucky to have her with us.

This week she has been working with all classes introducing a new approach to teaching Numeracy through the use of story problems. By using different number ranges across the class, the children have been appropriately challenged. Ms Brewer has worked alongside the class teachers to explore the various strategies the children are using to work out the answer to a range of questions whilst modelling their strategies to the rest of the class. This enables children to be exposed to various strategies and evaluate how effective they are for particular calculations. This has been very interesting for Class Teachers to observe how the children are applying their strategy and knowledge to solve problems. Keep an eye on See-Saw for further updates.
