Bayles Regional Primary School is very excited to share with you its “Maths Ninjas Program”. Having been based from the Maths Master/ Ranger Program we have given the Maths Ninjas Program a face lift and created some exciting new features. The Program has long been linked to studies and theories related to the importance of Number Sense by Di Seimons and her “Big Ideas in Number” research and findings. The program will be taught as part of the Numeracy Curriculum at BRPS. Students will work through the program beginning with the Orange Ninja Belt, Yellow Ninja Belt, Green Ninja Belt, Purple Ninja Belt, Pink Ninja Belt and finally completing the Aqua Ninja Belt. All of these relate to the key skills required for students to have a sound knowledge base around Number Sense. There is also a Red Ninja Belt and a Blue Ninja Belt that will cover the key concepts of Time and Financial Maths (Money). Students will receive wristbands that correlate to the colour of their successfully gained belt at assemblies after they have completed the matching mutagen (a problem solving task that correlates with the skills learnt in that particular belt). We encourage parents to be active in our Maths Ninjas Program and you can assist by following the qr codes below and assisting your child to learn the required skills through online activities and games or by following the given ideas. This should be an enjoyable way of assisting your child’s growth in Mathematics and celebrating their success.
