Big Ideas

Recovery, catch-up and intervention

Big Ideas is a catch-up programme for nine to 12-year-olds who would benefit from revisiting key concepts from the upper primary maths curriculum. It provides additional sessions for children in KS2 and KS3 to reinforce and embed key maths concepts. Everything you need to implement a KS2 primary maths catch-up or intervention programme. Using the proven Numicon approach, Numicon Big Ideas allows children to explore maths using structured imagery and apparatus in order to reinforce and embed key maths concepts.

This KS2 maths programme:

  • Is for 9 to 12-year-olds who would benefit from revisiting key concepts from the upper primary maths curriculum
  • Focuses on strong teaching of key maths topics using an active, practical approach
  • Provides engaging activities for the key concepts in upper Key Stage 2, where children in years 6 and 7 who haven't met age related expectations need to return to concepts taught in years 4 and 5. 
  • Is a ‘pick up and go pack’, which can be used alongside your existing maths resources to help rebuild key learning
  • Is a 12-week programme suitable for delivery by non-specialists and teaching assistants
