The school has invested in a range of resources to support the children’s learning and development of conceptual understanding in mathematics. The main resource we have purchased is Numicon.
Numicon is a range of multi-sensory maths resources using imagery, models and signs to raise mathematical achievement.
It helps children to reason mathematically through the use of concrete objects and spoken language to explain and justify.
It will also help children to develop into confident problem solvers since it provides them with visual a stimulus to support their reasoning communication.
Finally, Numicon can help us make confident and competent mathematicians, as well as making learning fun and interactive.
The Oxford University Press explains how Numicon can help children learn in their video 'Making numbers real'.
Our Maths Co-Ordinator, has found a list of useful websites to support your child's learning through using Numicon.
