Numeracy Days

An essential life skill such as numeracy deserves increased focus and at Cornfield we have annual Numeracy Days, two day events, where we focus on the functional skills needed by everyone.  These days have an imaginative basis and involve all the students in developing their numeracy skills.

Recent numeracy days have involved Castaway, where everyone was trapped on an island inhabited by wild animals, Football Frenzy which corresponded with the World Cup and Alien Invasion where we taught the aliens a lot of useful numeracy skills.

Each event has provided the framework for tasks involving basic number work, complex calculations, areas, perimeters, shapes, formulae, currency, conversions, graphs and charts – every aspect of the numeracy curriculum presented in an entertaining and functional way to ensure the students’ work included using and applying their skills .
