Our Schools Products

SMASH Maths are the experts in providing online maths learning using spaced repetition. This means that our Practices cover all topics of the maths curriculum every week. Spaced repetition has been shown by research to improve learning retention considerably.

This approach is very complementary to topic-based teaching at schools.

At SMASH Maths, we offer fantastic core and premium products for schools.

SMASH Maths for Schools

SMASH Maths for Schools – CORE package

Core SMASH Maths for Schools provides weekly Spiral Practices using spaced repetition. Our core package is suited to schools wanting their pupils to benefit from our unique Spiral Curriculum approach, but also mindful of tight school budgets.

SMASH Maths for Schools – PREMIUM package

Premium SMASH Maths for Schools is like the Core version, but with the following differences. The package is more suited for schools who prefer to pay for our full Spiral Learning programme for all of their pupils.

The Premium package costs £60 per class, per year.

  • Comprises two Practices a week (not one).
  • Each Practice has 10+ questions (so 20+ questions a week in total per week).
  • New Practices are published every week of the calendar year (not just during school term time as with the free package). This helps pupils retain learning considerably throughout the school holidays.
  • Our Ultimate SATs Revision Programme is made available from the beginning of the Spring term, in January (not one week prior to the exam, as with the free package).

What is
SMASH Maths?

SMASH Maths is not like other online maths programmes.

SMASH Maths is a unique weekly online Practice using a Spiral Curriculum approach to help primary school children learn maths.

We do not follow the current trend of AI-driven adaptive teaching, which we feel has drawbacks for children’s learning (such as not covering the whole curriculum). Learn how we differ to our competitors.

We are focused on using tried and tested spaced repetition to help children gain confidence in maths, and ultimately do their best in SATs, 7+ and 11+ entrance exams.

What is Spiral Practice?

Spiral Practice is where students practise every area of the maths curriculum every week, rather than a traditional topic-by-topic based approach.

Our Spiral Practices use a spaced repetition approach, which is scientifically proven to embed learning retention and get great maths results!

More testimonials

Jamie, Maths Subject Leader, Muschamp Primary School

“We have been using the ‘spiral curriculum’ approach for a number of years at Muschamp Primary School, since Sarah-Anne Fernandes introduced it. The philosophy behind spaced repetition, which enables regularly revisiting all topics learnt has had a significant impact on our children embedding their maths knowledge and having confidence to solve maths problems. The SPIRAL strategy has certainly contributed towards our consistently strong SATs results over the last few years.”

Shanelle, Maths Subject Leader, St Leonard's Primary School

“Sarah-Anne is a fantastic maths consultant and has really shaped me into the Maths Leader I am today. She has a wealth of subject knowledge and demonstrates her expertise in many ways.

Her spiral maths curriculum guidance has had a significant impact on improving maths results and enabled the children at my school to respond more positively to maths, especially towards problem solving.”

Louise, teacher in Rochester, Year 2, Keep on Track

“I’m a teacher at an independent school so always keeping my eye out for resources! I heard about SMASH Maths so signed up my daughter. Bea worked hard on the questions and really loved Sarah-Anne’s feedback! She thought Sarah-Anne was marking it there and then! I really like how SMASH Maths is helping her revisit concepts and make progress on new ones.”
