The development of numeracy knowledge and skills contributes to a student’s ability to make sense of the world around them and to solve problems they encounter in their everyday lives.
We use a multi-sensory hands-on approach at Wilson School. In the last two years we have introduced Numicon across the school. This is a programme that is backed by research and addresses the needs of our students. It has been proven by research that by adopting the Numicon approach to maths and following the teaching programme, children are helped in securing the essential building blocks of maths understanding, giving them the best chance to be successful in maths all their lives. Our teachers are finding that Numicon is a highly effective teaching and learning tool that helps motivate and engage students easily.
