Since January 2017 we have been using the Numicon approach to teach Maths. The children have taken part in engaging and fun Maths activities and the video below shows our journey so far.
At the recent Maths meeting for parents, the maths team shared the key concepts behind the Numicon approach. Children have regular experiences of concrete apparatus to help them with their learning and to deepen their Maths understanding.
Feedback from the Maths meeting for parents was really positive and we will be running more in the future. Please let us know what you would like to know more about.
