Introduction to conceptual understanding from Pakefield

 

Big Maths!

big maths logo

Big Maths is a teaching method that makes progress in maths easy and fun for children and teachers. Big Maths has been met with huge success across the UK and internationally. Thousands and thousands of children now learn through Big Maths every day and take part in a 'Big Maths Beat That!' challenge every week.
Big Maths focuses on the question. 'How do we get children properly numerate as they journey through school?'
Children at Pakefield primary follow a framework that guarantees numeracy progress known as CLIC. (Counting, Learn its, It's Nothing New and Calculation) Every child follows accurate steps of progression (known as progress drives as shown below)

The Big maths characters:

Count Fourways:

count 4 ways

Count fourways helps children learn to count in four crucial ways. The four ways are counting in 1s, 2s, 5s and 25s. Each of these four ways is built upon progressively.

 

 

 

 

Where’s Mully:

mully

‘Mully Multiple’ known as ‘Mully’ for short likes to explore and to hide. He likes to hide behind the biggest multiple of a number he can find.
‘Where’s Mully’ is a game played as part of a CLIC session. As a game the objective is to find where Mully is hiding. This game is about extending children’s knowledge of multiples and how knows multiples can be added to other known multiples to find new ones. Children are asked to find Mully by identifying the largest multiple of a given number.

 

Pom the alien:

pom

Pom is an alien. He lives with Pim on the planet CLIC. Pom has several features that help children learn 4 key mathematical words: multiple, factor, square and prime. Pom has space on his tummy for a multiple to appear, the factors of that number can then be recorded on the end of his body parts. The number 1 and the number itself (i.e. the number in questions from his tummy) should be recorded in each eye.

 

Pim the Alien:

pim
Pim is an alien from planet CLIC. Pim has 3 arms on one side and 4 arms on the other side. He therefore has 7 arms altogether. Anyone that has learnt that ‘3 add 4 equals 7’ can soon realise that this applies  to all ‘things’

 

 

Speedy Col:

speedy col

Speedy Col has a lot of energy! She likes to do everything quickly. She isn’t just fast though, she’s careful too. She likes everything done properly and is motivated to get the right result!

 

 

 

Squiggleworth:

squiggleworth

Squiggleworth is Pim the aliens pet dog! He can be used to help children have fun while they practice partitioning numbers. Squiggleworth can be used to partition numbers.

 

 

Super-FAB:

super fab

Super-FAB reminds children they are challenged to move along the FAB continuum and head towards a brain only method. He is really good at focussing on holding numbers in his head, doing something else and then coming back to those numbers again!
