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.
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.
I quite enjoy maths. I feel that the mental strip sheets have helped my speed and the mental agility has helped my techniques.
The timed sheets were really good because they helped me improve in my mental maths.
My son and daughter are loving their Maths lessons taught by Mr Armstrong. It’s definitely their favourite subject. Great enthusiasm and an excellent programme.
