"Lizzie's Active Multiplication Programme" (LAMP)
Learning on the Move!

Each multiplication table has its own theme and set of action patterns and the classroom based learning is supported with a selection of energetic P.E. team challenges, circuits and ball games.

Times tables are a brilliant brain exercise and the building blocks for learning long multiplication, division, fractions and percentages.

Many low attaining secondary pupils also struggle with instant recall of tables and our age related themed programme will offer a fresh opportunity for these pupils to re-engage in multiplication learning.

Boys in particular are eager to participate and learn their tables with our "Learning on the Move" approach.

"We force boys to sit still all day, to be polite and sedate. Education needs reform, it needs parents to see boys aren't being taught the way they were designed"

Tim Samuels: "Who Stole my Spear"

"Boys have more of their cerebral cortex defined for spatial relationships. As a result they learn through movement and visual experience. Because girls have more serotonin and oxytocin, they can sit for longer periods of time."

Dr Gail Goss: Human Behaviour, Parenting and Education Expert

Testimonials

"Some children find it very difficult to learn their times tables and this approach has been a tremendous boost for them. All the children have made progress using the method, and some have gone from simply not knowing their tables, to having perfect recall."

John Cosgrove, Headteacher, Christ the King Catholic Primary School, Reading

"Lizzie has worked very successfully with a group of PPG and SEND pupils in Year 5. They have previously really struggled to learn and retain their multiplication tables. Having attended a weekly "multiplication through movement" intervention with Lizzie and her team, they have learned their 7, 8 ,9 & 12 tables off by heart. They have performed the movement lined tables in sequential and random order with new found confidence. Their class teachers are thrilled with the results and report that it has had a positive impact on learning in the class. The children's self- esteem has improved too and they have enjoyed performing the movement to their peers."

Nathan Butler Broad, Headteacher Battle Primary Academy School, Reading

"Lizzie and her team have brought energy and enthusiasm to the school with her creative method for learning times tables. Children, who have been so disinterested in the past, are now excited about how quickly they have learned something, which was previously such an alien concept. This is an excellent programme that gets not only academic outcomes but also results in clear benefits for children's self-esteem and confidence."

Katy Peters, Headteacher (formerly Battle Primary Academy School),
Hatherden Primary School, Andover

"The children have really enjoyed learning their multiplication tables using your actions to help support them. The results have been pleasing and have definitely put us in a stronger position when teaching this area of the curriculum."

Rachel McDonagh, Deputy Headteacher, Moorlands Primary School, Reading

"Lizzie's Active Multiplication Programme provides a unique and dynamic approach to learning multiplication tables. It is providing our GCSE Maths retake students with a renewed focus and motivation. The themed tables are excellent for this specific age group and our staff are delighted to have the opportunity to train in this method with Creativity in Sport's CPD. Above all, I value Lizzie's passion, energy and enthusiasm for enabling learners to improve their literacy and numeracy skills."
