We have recently introduced Big Maths to our school. In December 2015, all our staff were trained in this exciting and highly effective strategy. The aim is to increase the rapid recall of number facts and mental maths skills for all of our pupils and ultimately enable them to be more confident and efficient at maths.
Since we have started and throughout school, the children have been buzzing with enthusiasm as they complete their Big Maths Beat That challenges, attempting to get the highest score in a given time. Week on week, they will try to attempt to increase their score, competing against themselves to improve their accuracy and speed.
Below is a video presenation from our recent workshop for parents and an information leaflet which outlines Big Maths in more detail.
