Big Maths

Big Maths is a teaching programme to help children to become numerate. Problem solving and word problems cannot be solved until children can manipulate numbers and understand how the number system works. The children are introduced to differentiated maths numeracy sheets called CLICs, SAFEs and Learn Its to help them manipulate numbers and become more confident and successful at maths. There is a strong emphasis on developing instant recall of number facts, including number bonds and times tables.


Using this solid mathematical foundation, interleaved with our mastery approach to teaching maths lessons, children will be able to apply their number facts to a range of fluency, reasoning and problem-solving tasks.
