Maths at Meath Green Junior School
At Meath Green Junior School, we recognise the importance of ensuring our children develop a sound mathematical understanding and skill set. The teaching of mathematics is integral to all aspects of life and with this in mind we endeavor to ensure that children also develop a positive and enthusiastic attitude towards mathematics that will stay with them and the confidence to draw on the skills learnt later on in life.
Meath Green Junior School have started a new initiative called Maths Passports.
Maths Passports are a fun and creative way to develop your child’s capabilities to solve mental calculations with increasing ease and speed. We believe that these skills are at the very core of maths. The passports are designed to cover a range of skills and provide progression throughout. Once your child has demonstrated their ability to complete the targets on their passport, they will move onto a new passport with new targets. The children learn strategies that help them achieve their targets, which they practice in class. We then hope to see them transfer this knowledge into other areas of maths.
Please use the PowerPoint below to inform you of the targets that child needs to achieve before moving onto their next passport
