What's it all about?

Let's Game!

 Let's Game! is a community support program for families in the Fyansford  district.

 Let's Game! relies on parents to implement the activities; all of which are designed to meet the needs

of children in their primary-school years.

 Let's Game! is not a literacy or numeracy program. Rather, it has as its focus the development of pupils' thinking skills.

2.   Topical Explorations

Developmental, sequentially-skilled home explorations; each with a focus on a different topic. Topics will be posted as a total unit containing eight activity sheets.

  2. Blocks-n-dice ~ Puzzles based around ‘dice’

3.   Blast-Off!

A series of independent activity sheets drawing from all areas of the primary ‘number’ curriculum with a focus on reasoning, clear thinking and problem solving. Good numeracy and literacy skills are essential. This program is geared more to the independent and skilled student functioning at a higher level, i.e. top year-6 to 8.
