Swans organised and hosted a Numicon Training Day which was led by two experienced trainers from the UK and attended by all primary teaching staff, as well as teachers from other local schools and some from as far afield as northern Spain.
The “Discover Numicon” training is a one day practical workshop organised through the Oxford University Press.
The training provided teachers with increased knowledge and skill but it also presented us with the opportunity to be the learners. Training was aimed at primary teachers of Foundation, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 students and included reasoning and problem solving activities.
We were reminded of how much learning takes place through investigating, experimenting and by making mistakes.
