A Primary Maths solution.
Prioritising Basic Skills.

Basic Skills form the foundations upon which all learning is built. We have identified the 4 cornerstones of Basic Skills that guarantees new learning is doable.

We call this progression CLIC and it will transform your children’s outcomes.


Learn Its

It’s Nothing New


A Big Maths Lesson. Step by Step.

Choose Your Learning Steps.

A CLIC session usually lasts for 20 minutes with 5 minutes being spent on each area of Counting, Learn Its, It’s Nothing New and Calculation.

CLIC sessions are either extended into whole lessons, or are used as high impact fluency lesson-starters prior to giving input.

Develop Your Subject Knowledge.

Every learning step in the Big Maths framework has in-depth teacher notes. These notes offer teachers expert advice with tips on how to introduce the step and guidance on what to look out for as you teach your lesson. We ensure every teacher in school is teaching with the confidence and focus seen in the most experienced teachers.

Download Resources.

No lesson would be complete without a comprehensive set of resources.

Big Maths has over 3,200 resources linked to steps throughout the framework allowing you to differentiate between pupils on the same step.

We Cover The Rest Too.

When used as a starter, the rest of your lesson will be focused on the other skills needed to become fully numerate such as Shape, Amounts, Explaining Data, Fractions etc. That’s why we have extended out framework to include learning steps for every mathematical skill.

Wishing to complement/strengthen a different Mastery approach in school? Alternatively, CLIC can be used as the driving force for children’s numeracy skills, whilst running alongside your current approach.
