My Maths Passport – Our new mental maths project across the school
We have introduced a new mental maths project across the school called the Numeracy Passport. This starts in Reception and works all the way up to Year 6.
How it works:
- The children are all issued with a passport which they will keep right up to the end of year 6.
- In Reception they will start on a pre-passport programme which we are calling their suitcase.
- The passport welcomes them to different regions starting with Europe, and moving on to Asia, Africa, South Africa, Australasia, Antarctica, North America & South America. They then become Globetrotters before taking off to the Moon (Lunar) and then out of our solar system (Intergalactic).
- In order to progress from one region to the next they need to achieve a number of mental Maths targets (each target has to be achieved 3 times). The targets are outlined below.
- The targets are incorporated into the children’s oral and mental starters on a daily basis.
- Children will be assessed on these targets at regular intervals by completing a timed task.
- Each target has to be achieved without error three times. When all the targets in a region have been met three times then the target has been achieved and the children are ready for the next region.
- When a region has been completed the children will receive a certificate. They then move on to the next region and a new set of targets.
We are currently carrying out initial assessments to ensure children start the passport in an appropriate place.
We are very excited about this initiative and are expecting it to help raise standards in our school.
