‘Big Maths’ is a totally new approach to the teaching of mathematics in primary schools, and Christ Church is now a ‘Big Maths’ school.
‘Big Maths’ is based upon the principle that there are 4 core skills that lie at the heart of numeracy. These core skills form the platform for virtually all other maths skills and are affectionately known as CLIC, Counting, Learn its, It’s nothing new! and Calculations. Because it is so important for all children to make progress in all 4 core skills, ‘Big Maths’ involves teaching through the CLIC phases every day in a fun, engaging and lively manner.
