Practical equipment that we use
Here at ascot Heath Primary School we believe that the use of equipment is really important for the children to have a deep understanding of Maths.
Below are a few examples of the different equipment that we use in school. You can also look at our calculation policy to see the equipment that we use in different year groups and for which area of Maths we use them (see below).
If you would like to have some of the equipment in your own home that you can use with your Year 1, 2 and 3 children, we do sell a Maths Pack. As well as equipment you will receive instructions about how to use the equipment with your child.
- Number track to 20

- arrow cards
- 100 square
- Tens frame
- Mickey mouse ears (whole part model)
