Big Maths

Mathematics lessons are taught following the Big Maths Planning Framework.


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. Big Maths lessons are fast-paced and fun. The children are introduced to child-friendly terms, such as 'Switchers' 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.
