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.

I am getting faster at the Timed Challenge Sheets, addition, subtraction, multiplication and divide. They are easier now thanks to the Big Guy, step 1 step 2 and best friends 10 and 20.

SAMSON children are streets ahead.

 Brilliant initiative.

Staff have found that focusing on the single strategies benefits their pupils immensely.
