NAPLAN (The National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy) is an annual assessment for all students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9.

Maths Words not Squiggles understands the importance of these four main learning areas so we incorporate them into our daily lesson plans, regardless of whether the NAPLAN test is approaching or not.
