Children meet very important ideas about number long before they start school, and as adults it is easy to underestimate how difficult these ideas are. Our 1st Steps with Numicon in the Nursery Kit is designed to give children a sound start to their maths understanding through conversation with Nursery practitioners alongside interactive and playful activities. The teaching guide gives straightforward explanation of the mathematical ideas children meet as this vital stage. 'Practitioners sometimes find it difficult to think of meaningful maths activities, but practitioners in Southend are now much more aware of the potential for mathematical learning in their setting and are using the Numicon resources in a range of exciting creative ways. In addition to the plastic resources the kit includes an illustrated teaching guide that explains the key mathematical ideas children will meet at this vital stage in their maths understanding and boosts practitioner’ maths subject knowledge'
Elaine Bennett, Southend Authority.
As we know, children’s early experiences at home and school have a huge impact on their later achievement in early years maths. This is why we have carefully developed our Numicon Firm Foundations Kit and our Numicon at the Seaside Big Book Set for children aged 3-5. Through playing with Numicon Maths Shapes in the progressive series of practical fun activities, young children learn about number ideas and how numbers fit together, in a way not provided just by written numerals.
All of our Kits come with a Teaching Guide, Programme of Activities and Assessment Tools plus in the Firm Foundations Kit there are also ideas for extending the core activities through inside and outdoor play. All of the activities signal the all important maths language. The work covered in the Numicon Firm Foundations Kit forms a vital foundation for future learning and so it is very important that children have a solid understanding of these ideas before moving on to Kits 1 and 2.
