Have fun with your child by playing the games in this kit together and help them to thrive at the maths they’re learning in school. Designed to work both brilliantly on its own and as a natural progression from the First Steps Kit, the activities and apparatus here will build your child’s understanding of numbers to 100 and their ability to use and talk about them with confidence.

In the kit there’s an easy-to-use activity book, with full guidance and step-by-step illustrations to show you what to do. Use the activities in the order they appear in the book and see your child’s understanding of key concepts grow from counting, adding and subtracting right through to multiplying, dividing and fractions. The activities are designed to be done many times – the more the better!

As an added bonus you can find more activities and resources to use with your Next Steps kit on this page.

As you build up your collection of Numicon apparatus, you unlock new ways for your child to learn and explore maths ideas. If you have both the First Steps and Next Steps Kits you may also like to try these new activities.

In the Numicon at Home kits for parents section below there are links to products that you can buy, designed to work with the kits.

Numicon is one of a kind! Used by teachers everywhere and proven to support and develop your child’s maths learning. If you would like to learn more about it, see our guide for parents.
