Here’s What Others Say

“Children enjoyed the sessions and it made a significant difference in their attitude to maths, improving self esteem, confidence and a greater willingness to take part in mathematical activities within class numeracy sessions. The games are fun and engaging designed in small and carefully sequenced steps. Questions and instructions are well thought out and provide plenty of opportunities for consolidation. Children are encouraged to think and speak about mathematics, leading to a greater use and development of mathematical language and an improved ability to problem solve. The memory games were extremely practical and something we have never used before, leading children to improve their listening and recall skills which helped with mathematical concepts. As each week progressed, parents were increasingly enthused, saying they had noticed improvements in their children’s interest and ability in maths and parents expressed enjoyment in engaging in the activities with their child and appreciated the impact the programme was having in progressing their child’s confidence and enthusiasm in maths. The programme builds foundations for long term improvements in mathematical attainment, helping to close the gap between children from different socio-economic backgrounds.” -Early Years Interventions Teacher

After doing this programme we found the children were more engaged with whole class number sessions and the parents talked about their excitement to use props such as playing cards and dominoes to explore number at home. The children were more confident using a number strip and the counting strip too.

There were lots of changes. Progress in S was visible straight away. I’m so grateful for what this intervention programme has done for her..

Brainy Maths Parent

I learnt things I never knew before. I knew the answer to things like 3 + 3 but not how to teach it. I didn’t know for my other children so I couldn’t help them.

Brainy Maths Parent

I really loved the parent sessions. My son loves playing the games.

Brainy Maths Parent

Playing games has made their memory better. The programme has given them better maths knowledge and language… it’s also impacted on their PSED

All children made progress with their number. I would be keen to run the programme again due to improved focus and concentration and also mathematical development.

The activities were beneficial for the children’s concentration skills and thinking for themselves. All the children’s concentration and attention improved along with language, confidence and taking turns.
