Testing and assessment

Dear Parents


Number Facts and Mental Maths are a key to student success in maths. At Sherwood our teachers are actively teaching number facts to support student success in more complex mathematical thinking. Here on our website we have provided you a sample of the types of number facts and mental maths we would like students to learn through years 2 to 6. You could help at home by giving students some regular practice at the examples we have provided here. 


The tests are different for Year 2 through to Year 6. You might like to dip into the level where your child/ren have some examples to learn but the task is not overwhelming. Talking through the examples children do not understand will help support the work we are doing at school – your conversation is supporting the learning rather than expecting that students immediately know all the answers. These tests are similar to, but not the same as, those we give students in Term 1 and Term 3 each year.​
