Children at Long Lee 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 Long Lee 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
