BIG MATHS

Big Maths is used to help children 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 have daily CLIC sessions, CLIC stands for Counting, Learn Its, It's Nothing New, Calculations. There is a strong emphasis on developing instant recall of number fact, including number bonds and timetables.

Big Maths and Learn Its timed challenges are completed weekly. The children aim to improve their previous score each time.
