Numicon pattern making.
In maths this term the children have been using Numicon to support them with their learning. Numicon is a great tool that helps children to understand about size order and number without having to think about the numerals. Each piece of Numicon has its own unique shape and colour.
This week we have been looking more closely at the different shapes and seeing if we can recreate them using special pegs on the Numicon boards. We had to think carefully about where we could start and how we could test if we had made the right shape. The children showed us that they could match and re-create the different Numicon patterns and test their work by placing the Numicon piece over the peg. The children were encouraged to talk about their work and how they can prove their answers.
Great work Reception!
