Memorising the spelling of basic sight words and number facts allow students to work quickly and confidently in class. Sets of sight words and maths facts have been selected for each year group to commit to memory. When students believe they have mastered a set, they let their teacher know so that a time for testing can be arranged. As each set of facts is mastered, a mastery badge is awarded. Students keep these in a special album and are encouraged to earn as many as they can throughout the year.
Support for learning the number facts is available on our Maths Mastery pages. Teachers also cover these in their teaching programs and are able to provide take home materials to support memorisation.
