This term we have been developing the children’s mathematics programme through Numicon in the Foundation Stage (FS) and Izak9 in the upper school.

Numicon is a system of flat plastic shapes with holes in, with each shape representing a number from 1 to 10. Each number has its own colour.

The aim of Numicon is to make numbers real by allowing the children to see and touch them. It provides a concrete object to represent each number. It also has a multi-sensory approach that’s known to help learning.

We were able to purchase the equipment through a grant from the Rathsherry Community Benefit Fund and avail of a teacher training programme with our Shared Education partners in Camphill PS (Ballymena).

Numicon is so much fun. Here is a little snapshot of some of the games FS children have been playing in Term I.
