The Best Whole School Primary Maths Programme
Welcome to responsive, precision teaching!
When you know what a child knows, you know what to teach them next!
Built to Help Teachers!
What makes teaching maths difficult? Perhaps most significantly, the primary maths curriculum is designed with the end in mind, is based on age, and does not recognise your pupils. Furthermore, teaching a class is complex! We’ve mapped out all of the small, simple steps of learning from birth to the end of primary school, empowering you to accurately assess each child’s ability level.
We Help You to Teach Maths!
Big Maths was created to support teachers, so we include content and resources designed to complement your subject knowledge and increase confidence in teaching maths. Most importantly, we help you to make learning maths fun and engaging. As a small, family-run business based in Wakefield, Yorkshire, this is personal; every school, teacher, and pupil is important to us.

Every Step of Learning for Maths
Teach With EASE
Big Maths prioritises developing Basic Skills (such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division), and is designed to help children become confident and fluent mathematicians with strong mental maths skills. It uses a range of teaching methods, including games, songs, and visual aids, to make learning maths fun and engaging. We believe that children learn best when they are taught in small, sequential steps, meaning that you can identify what each child knows, in order to know what to teach them next. Teach with EASE… Ensure All Steps are Easy!

Getting the chronology right is key to a smooth journey. Basic Skills progress in chronological order… Counting skills feed into Learn Its (Number Facts) which feed into It’s Nothing New which, you guessed it, feed into Calculation. That’s CLIC…
