What is


Spiral Practice?

SMASH Maths is a unique weekly online Spiral Practice for primary school children.
Students revisit and practise every area of the maths curriculum every week, rather than a traditional topic-by-topic based approach.
It is the perfect complement to revisit and embed maths teaching at school.
This approach is proven to review, consolidate and embed learning for every pupil using spaced repetition.
All our practices are carefully designed to systematically introduce current year group content while revisiting the previous year's learning.
Our spiral approach aligns to Amanda Spielman's (Ofsted's Chief Inspector) recent message in her ASCL Annual Conference 2021 Speech: 
“We all know that building and consolidating learning takes practice and repetition.”
Try a sample Practice with mixed questions from KS1 and KS2.

Case study


Headteacher of St Leonard's Primary School, Lambeth

Ofsted rating: Outstanding

Simon discusses how Sarah-Anne has used her Spiral Curriculum approach to improve maths results at his school considerably.

Sarah-Anne's expertise and use of the Spiral Practice approach in mathematics has ensured the school consistently achieves excellent maths outcomes at the end of Year 6.


This can be seen from the graph below (from the government's school performance website) which shows how St. Leonard's three-year average maths score is higher than other schools in their local authority and against all state schools in England.



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.”
