How we teach Maths at Clifton

Maths Curriculum Progression

Our Calculation Policy

Our Maths Passports

Our Maths Passport is a clearly structured, progressive way to help children be very clear about their next step in their mental maths skills.

The Maths Passports are linked to the National Curriculum for each year group and have the following year group expectations:

  • By the end of Reception, the expectation is for children to have completed the British Isles;
  • By the end of Key Stage 1, in Year 2, we aim for children to have completed Antarctica;
  • By the end of Year 4, the expectation is for children to have completed Globetrotter;
  • By the end of Key Stage 2, in Year 6, the aim is for all of the land based passports to be completed including Atlantis .

If children do complete all the main passports within their time at Lydbrook, they will ‘launch to space’ whereby they will make their way through a series of space themed passports which relate specifically to revising concepts within the Year 5 and 6 curriculum.
