"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

"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

"The programme has had an immediate and positive impact on pupils, staff and parents alike. We know that the programme will also help more pupils achieve success in the national multiplication test administered in Year 4. Learning your times table in a fun and interactive way has caught on in other year groups too and more and more pupils are 'doing the moves' enthusiastically."

Sharifah Lee, Deputy Headteacher, Dorney Primary School, Maidenhead

"The children have been incredibly engaged during their times tables sessions with Lizzie's Active Multiplication programme, the enjoyment of active participation in their learning is clear to see. Attainment in all times tables we have learnt so far has increased, and they have a dependable strategy for remembering their times tables during our class quizzes. We have already observed an improvement in both their ability and the speed with which they can answer multiplication-based questions, and the children's confidence has greatly improved. They no longer fear times tables, they enjoy them!"

Kimberley Stuckey, Year 4 Lead, Whitley Park Primary School, Whitley

"Lizzie and her team have 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, performing the movement lined tables in sequential and random order with new found confidence. Their class teachers are thrilled with the results."

Nathan Butler Broad, Headteacher Battle Primary Academy School, Reading

"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, Hatherden School, Andover

"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."
