Maths Passports

What are Maths passports?
We use passport cards for each stage/continent containing a list of targets taken from the rapid recall elements of the Primary Framework for each year group:
Stage 1 – Europe
Stage 2 – Asia
Stage 3 – Africa
Stage 4 – Australasia
Stage 5 – North America
Stage 6 – South America
Stage 7 – Globetrotters
This is a very personalised way of learning as the children are challenged in the passport that is appropriate for the level they are working at. They progress at their own speed onto the next stage.
 
Passport Process:
1.  The passport targets are incorporated into the oral mental starters twice a week.
2.  Children are assessed on these targets weekly by completing a timed task.
3.  Three ticks next to a target indicates that the target has been achieved.
4.  Children continue to practice and be assessed on the remaining targets until all of the targets for a continent have been achieved. They receive a certificate for this achievement. They then move on to the next continent and a new set of targets.
