I just wanted to say how fantastic I think SAMSON is... I am a parent and know very little about it but have a son in P7 at Troqueer
Primary who has never “got” numbers and “hated maths”...! I found this difficult as i was taught arithmetic well and use “mental maths”
every day at 40.... Since he has started SAMSON he has made huge progress with all aspects of mental maths - it’s quite unbelievable. I
only wish he had benefitted from it sooner! He’s even enjoying numbers and their challenges now which is great. I’m looking forward to
learning a bit more about the strategies and how parents can support the work at home soon. I think it’s a brilliant addition to kids
education and just wanted to thank you very much! All the best, with kind regards. - Happy Parent.
They have been a massive help because when I first came into P7, I was getting 15/20 in 4 minutes 30 seconds and I am now getting 20/20 in 2 minutes 6 seconds.
I think when we do the maths timed sheets in the morning it helps us get faster and learn our sums quicker. It helps me learn when we do Big Guy number bond and step 1 step 2.
In P7 we do a lot of timed strips and I am getting faster and faster. I understand what to do and I can do Big Guy number bond, step 1 step 2, and use best friends 10 and 20.
The maths challenges and flipcharts have helped with my speed and accuracy.
