Numeracy Passports

By Jeanette Viney
on July 14, 2016

Hamilton's Numeracy and First Number Passports are all about improving memorisation and fluency in key skills. Each passport contains lists of basic facts and fundamental skills that need to be secure for the teaching and learning of the new maths curriculum to run smoothly.

Numeracy and First Number Passports

The First Number Passports are designed for Reception class children and are completed in one year. The Numeracy Passports take children right the way from Year 1 through to Year 6.


The passports look and feel like real passports. The First Number facts/skills progress children through a journey to the four countries of the United Kingdom, while the Numeracy Passports progress through the seven continents to take children around the whole world. The appealing context of a journey helps reinforce the satisfaction of moving forward. When a child has completed a country or continent, the date is entered on the first page. There is space for children’s photographs at the back to make the passports really special to them. The quality of these passports is intended to raise the status of learning these important skills.

Home-school link

The passports are designed to be sent home so that parents/carers can see which facts/skills children are practising, and help with them.

Marking progress

There are spaces for three ticks next to each target to indicate that the child has demonstrated this target. This may have been noted through observation by a teacher or teaching assistant, a test, and/or feedback from a parent/carer. If the child has been seen to have demonstrated this skill three times, the child has really got it!

Available to purchase from us here at Hamilton Education!

There is a taster pack to give you a chance to see what the passports look and feel like. It includes one First Number and one Numeracy Passport as well as a tips sheet to give you ideas about how to use the passports to best effect. The passports come in packs of 10 or 30. Click on 'For the Teacher' for more information.
