Developed by a team of highly experienced primary teachers, authors and maths experts, Maths and Me is fully aligned to the new Primary Maths Curriculum (PMC).

The programme helps you to effectively plan, teach and assess maths, allowing for the easy and practical implementation
of the PMC.

Maths and Me is a highly engaging programme that cleverly combines:

  • High-quality Pupil’s Books
  • Interactive Digital Resources
  • Comprehensive Teacher’s Resources

Each class is different so flexibility and choice is key in Maths and Me, enabling you to easily tailor the programme to the needs of your class – the programme is also suitable and fully supports multi-grade classrooms.

The Maths and Me Approach

Designed to make the implementation of the new Primary Maths Curriculum a practical, straight-forward, and supported journey for teachers and pupils, Maths and Me gives special consideration to supporting the five key pedagogical practices recommended, breaking down the new curriculum into lesson plans that are manageable, well structured, engaging, and child-friendly.

  • Each unit is subdivided into lessons with detailed lesson plans provided in the Teacher’s Planning Book
  • Each unit ends with a ‘Review and Reflectlesson which features a useful menu of potential activities that teachers can choose from to support the needs of their class

 

✔️ Constructivist

✔️ Collaborative

✔️ Integrative

✔️ Reflective

✔️ Inquiry-Based Learning

Maths and Me creates a positivity towards maths, and helps to build pupils’ confidence and develop their mathematical skills. The programme for each class is divided into units that focus on an area of learning.
