Accredited Numicon Training
We are pleased to work in partnership with the UK Oxford University Press (OUP) to deliver accredited Numicon training for FS/KS1/KS2. Numicon is an active, problem solving approach to developing mathematical skills based on structured resources and schemes of work that encourages positive mathematical attitudes, exploration and discussion in all children. Through systematic use of the resources children can be enabled to think mathematically, discuss their ideas and investigate and solve problems. This open-ended approach is suitable for all age groups and allows children to develop very strong foundations and understanding of all mathematical concepts. To make the most of these excellent resources and accompanying scheme, our trainers help teachers explore and understand the pedagogy of the resources, to maximize learning possibilities. To schools new to Numicon, once they have purchased the resources (Please contact OUP for this), we offer a 3 hour introduction to Numicon. Once schools have competed this we can offer sessions based on expanding the understanding of the materials and how to use them for either FS and KS1 or for KS2. Please contact us for more details.
