Numeracy passports

What are Numeracy Passports?

Numeracy Passports are a strategy for improving children’s mental maths skills. Each child will be given a passport which they will take with them throughout their primary school life. The passport tracks progression in basic number skills.  The children will develop instant recall skills in all of the objectives – they should not be taking time to work out the answer to each question, they need to know it instantly.

Passports are based on the continents of the world

There are currently 8 sections.

Europe

Asia

Africa

Australasia

Antarctica

How to help at home

We would ask that you spend 10 minutes each day practising your child’s passport skills with them. This could be driving to school, at the supermarket, at dinner time, before bed – it doesn’t need to be a sit down, formal time.  Most activities can be done through talking with your child. For most of the skills, you could try the same procedures:

Eg number bonds to 10, you say 6, your child says 4
