Using Manipulatives

At St Michael's C of E Federated Junior School we believe that through careful differentiation every child can achieve. It is through use of manipulatives such place value mats. denes equipment, counters, straws, dice, playing cards, multiplication grids, dominoes, cuisinaire, number lines, the use of the bar method, and many more resources, that our children are really successful learners.

Through using these visual stimulus' and a variety of models and images the sky is the limit for all our children. We know our children find maths fun and learn so much through the use of these resources, no matter what their capabilities.  Ask your child what Manipulative they used today in maths!
