Exploring Number with Cuisenaire Rods

Year 2 have been exploring a new practical maths resource we have in school called Cuisenaire Rods. The colourful rods represent values from one to ten and we have been spending time familiarising ourselves with the rods and investigating patterns we can find with them.

We have been using the Cuisenaire Rods to support our understanding of number bonds to 10 and 20.

We have also been using them to solve repeated addition number sentences and develop our understanding of multiplication.


We are really enjoying developing our understanding of number using this fun new resource.
