We are really enjoying using SAMSON. I’m already seeing a very positive impact in my own class and have had lots of positive feedback from parents.
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.
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.
Staff have found that focusing on the single strategies benefits their pupils immensely.
Maths is one of my favourite subjects. I have got better at maths by doing timed sheets and strip sheets. I now have a faster time and am getting more accurate and much more confident.
