The Numeracy Passport
What is it?
The Numeracy Passport is given to children in Y1 and is taken with them all the way up to Y6. Inside, it lists the basic maths skills children need to have learnt by the end of that year. It focuses on key facts and mental arithmetic to help children become more fluent in maths.
Why is it important?
Having instant recall of key facts in maths is important as it allows children to focus on other aspects of maths such as reasoning and problem solving.
How do you use it?
At school, children will be taught these objectives in line with the national curriculum. They will also review one skill each week during their review lesson.
At home, parents can practise these skills with their children to help them become fluent.
