The Numberblocks PowerPoints designed for Early Years practitioners are currently being adapted into a parent-friendly format. New slides are now available, with more planned for publication during the spring term 2021. Teachers and practitioners can send them directly to parents to provide opportunities to explore early mathematical understanding at home, in conjunction with the Numberblocks episodes currently available on the BBC iPlayer. The slides can also be customised, making the content bespoke for families and pupils.
This short video, featuring Debbie Morgan (NCETM Director for Primary, and Numberblocks consultant) explains to teachers and Early Years practitioners how to use the new resources.
The PowerPoints begin at Series 1 Episode 7 ('Five'). This marks approximately where children in Reception will have got to when in school, so Episode 7 and beyond will be of the most use for teachers from this point in the term onwards.
