Children at Oldfield Primary School spend 15 minute per day learning their passport facts. These facts include number bonds, doubles, halves, times table facts and division facts.
Every child has a Maths Passport. The passport records each child’s maths journey. As pupils start, they ‘travel’ within the UK as they master the basics, with their passports stamped as they master a particular skill or concept. As they grasp more complex concepts and problem solving skills, they move on to more exotic continents and locations!
At Oldfield Primary School, we aim to:
- provide our pupils with the concrete resources to conceptually understand the objectives that they are working with
- provide a stimulating environment and adequate resources so that pupils can develop their mathematical skills to their full potential
- ensure all pupils become fluent in mathematics through varied and frequent practise with passport objectives over time
- enable our pupils to solve problems by applying these facts to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions
