Maths Makes Sense!


Maths Makes Sense is a powerful learning system that provides maths success for every child - for life!


Developed by educational expert Richard Dunne, this inspirational, whole school system is proven to make a quick impact on maths teaching and to raise standards. 

It makes maths concrete and fully understandable by making consistent use of tangible objects such as cups, cards and sticks, combined with exaggerated physical actions and a special vocabulary for each symbol. Maths Makes Sensechildren have an active, spoken and visual image of each maths concept, which completely embeds understanding.

On this page you should find lots of information that explains how MMS is used at our school. Please keep checking back for the latest updates! If you would like any further information about Maths Makes Sense, please feel free to ask your child's class teacher or Miss Marr (Maths Coordinator).
