WEBINAR: EXPLORING NUMICON in the CLASSROOM - 3 part online course
DATES: Thursdays, 6th, 13th & 20th May 2021  TIME: 6 p.m. - 7 p.m.  FACILITATOR: Edmond Scannell

Edmond Scannell is a teacher of 24 years with a speciality in SEN. He has presented at various ECs around the country on The Lexile Framework for Reading and Numicon.    He is the author & designer of summer CPD courses, namely ‘Exploring Numicon in the Classroom’ and ‘Collaborative Play Therapy for ASD & ADHD’ on Flúirse.com.

Numicon Presentation 1 – Thursday, 6th May 2021

Exploring Numicon in the Classroom

Teaching and learning with Numicon requires children to be active - to actively learn and to do the mathematics for themselves.  Doing mathematics (i.e. thinking and communicating mathematically) with Numicon, explicitly involves illustrating in every activity through exploring relationships.

Presentation 1:

Specific Learning Objectives

Having participated in this presentation teachers will:

Acquire a comprehensive working knowledge of how the unique materials that comprise Numicon can be used to explore and develop a broad range of key mathematical concepts with their pupils;

Revise, refresh and utilise the key pedagogical approaches to the teaching of mathematics;

Better devise, resource and deliver mathematics lessons that are hands-on and full of potential & possibility for discussion and conversation.

Presentation Outline/Overview

1. Matching Shapes

2. Ordering Shapes

3. Counting to 5

4. Understanding One More

5. Odd & Even, Sorting

6. Investigate Ordering & Make Generalisations

7. Basic Adding & Subtracting

8. Using Numicon Pegs

9. Number Bonds to 10

10. Number Square Patterns

Numicon Presentation 2 – Thursday, 13th May 2021

Exploring Numicon in the Classroom

Teaching and learning with Numicon requires children to be active - to actively learn and to do the mathematics for themselves.  Doing mathematics (i.e. thinking and communicating mathematically) with Numicon, explicitly involves illustrating in every activity through exploring relationships.

Presentation 2:

Specific Learning Objectives

Having participated in this presentation teachers will:

Itemise the assessment techniques and opportunities inherent in a Numicon approach;

Participate in corresponding activities that can be used to explore and develop each key idea with pupils;

Build on key mathematical ideas and techniques in relation to: structures, methods and properties of operations;

Understand the importance of visualisation, in terms of how visualisation will support pupil’s learning now and in the future, and the need to share this importance.
