Using Numicon

Learning about number can be challenging so to aid understanding, at Belmont we use Numicon which is a multisensory way of learning, meaning children learn by seeing, feeling and doing. Numicon are a system of flat, plastic shapes with holes in them. Each shape represents a number from one to 10 and each number has its own colour. When they're arranged in order, children can easily see connections between numbers. In class, we have been using them to help round numbers to the nearest 10 and 100.

The Kraken

We have made a wonderful start to the year in English! We have been studying 'The Kraken' by Alfred Lord Tennyson and the children have developed a great understanding of the poem. They used an image of the Kraken and an OSIE grid which helped them use powerful descriptive language when creating their own versions of the poem. You can read a super example below.
