Additional Numeracy Home Learning



Numicon is an approach to teaching maths that helps your child to see connections between numbers. It supports children as they learn early maths skills in nursery and primary school. It is a multi-sensory way of learning, which means your child learns by seeing and feeling.

Physical resources like the colourful Numicon Shapes are an important part of Numicon. The holes in the Numicon Shapes represent the numbers 1 to 10. When they are arranged in order, as in the picture below, children can easily see connections between numbers, such as ‘one more’ or ‘one less’.



Follow the link to download and print your own set of Numicon shapes to use at home.



Please see the link below for ideas of ways to use Numicon to support learning at home using this resource.
