 Hello Everyone,

Allow me to introduce myself, I’m Mark Jones from Wales in the UK and I’ll be teaching grade 3 math this year at ABS.
I’d like to extend a heartfelt welcome to all the new students at this, the outset of a new and exciting  academic year. I’m sure
all  students are going to have a great time learning mathematical concepts in a fun and interactive manor.
For week 1, we will be concentrating on getting to know each other and settling into the classroom routine.
Academically, we will be refreshing key concepts from grade 2, these being:
  • Identifying number patterns.
  • The commutative property of addition
  • Estimating and rounding to the nearest 10 or 100
I’m fully aware, the start of a new year,with new teachers, can be a stressful time for some students. But rest assured, all the staff at
ABS will do everything to integrate, everyone as smoothly as possible into their new learning environment. I look forward to
meeting everybody, all the best.
Teacher Mark ….
