I ❤️ Numicon. The tactile and visual element it adds to number is fantastic. At the moment in Reception we are really just at the exploration stage, so I've but putting the numicon out with the pai.

Money problem solving - making Finding different ways. Use real coins rather than plastic ones so that the pupil can generalise the skills into real life situations.

Numicon being used to teach non standard measurement alongside counting in and extending to problem solve when all the 'tens' have been used. Using and applying number skills to a practical task.
