Maths - Using equipment

At Dunham on Trent Church of England Primary School we believe that the children should be encouraged to use resources to help develop their understanding and recognition in plce value.Children begin to learn about place value by representing numbers using Numicon and Dienes equipment. These are excellent resources for bringing to life the relationship between units, tens and hundreds. Their relative sizes really enable children to visualise the numbers and see the relationship between them.
