Hope Scotland take SAMSON on and then start on the English market as education is so far behind Scotland.
My grandson came on leaps and bounds with SAMSON last school year.
SAMSON has made a real difference in our attainment in mental maths in a very short space of time. Children have responded well to the 'over learning' challenges. Staff are able to identify where the gaps in learning are, focus their teaching and because of the way delivery is organised (having only two teaching groups) their expectations have been raised! Finally, I would say that we are starting to see the benefits of children having better numeracy/computation skills/mental recall in other areas if their maths. Not struggling to work out basic number problems has allowed them to focus on the concepts being taught in mathematics.
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 mental Flipcharts are fun and helpful.
