At Garsington CE Primary we have invested significantly in new resources and associated staff training to help deliver the new National Curriculum programme of study for primary mathematics.
Numicon is a multi-sensory mathematics resource, built on a proven pedagogy that raises achievement across all mathematical ability levels and all years groups.
Numicon embodies the aims of the new Primary National Curriculum. It develops fluency by using a visual, practical base to aid conceptual understanding and fluent recall.
Helps children to reason mathematically through the use of concrete objects and encourages spoken language to explain and justify problem-solving.

EducationCity.com resources are fun and engaging while reinforcing the work pupils are learning in the classroom.
