Someone has recommended this maths resource to me.  It is quite expensive so before I splash out does anyone have a set or do your children use it in their schools?  What’s it like?

Never heard of that, but I know a lot of HE families who use ‘mathletics’ .  ‘Natural Maths’ is another good one…

I have seen similar systems made using Lego (try Google lego for maths, count each little circle as one)- might be an easy/cheap way to see if it suits the way your child learns. We bought these expensive wooden blocks, different unit lengths for learning maths, but boys just used them for playing toy soldiers! But all depends on the child and if they are the type to sit and work at a particular system.

I bought this:

hen mine were younger, I’d be happy to sell on if you are interested.

We have numicons for my littlest one who is numbers obsessed and I have to say they are brilliant - they are very cleverly done, and even weigh correctly so you can use them for balancing weights etc - I can highly recommend them as a maths resource.
He plays with them endlessly (age 3) and my daughter (age 7) who is on the more creative side also finds them very helpful too as they are so visual, so great all round really.
