TESTIMONIALS

Early signs are that pupils really enjoy using the program, they like the characters and the successes they gain from the consistent practise and seeing their results improve.

The timed sheets were really good because they helped me improve in my mental maths.

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 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.

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.
