Helping your child to learn and enjoy mathematics
At Oaktree, the children enjoy their lessons and love to be challenged. To support your child’s development in mathematics at home there are many games and puzzles available which your child will find enjoyable. You can find some links on this page.
Opportunities to use maths are all around us, for example when cooking, shopping and helping with DIY. Taking advantage of these opportunities can be the best way for your children to learn and use their mathematical skills.
Times tables facts are absolutely essential for children to make progress in mathematics, and children should aim to practice at least 3 times a week at home. All children will be working on a different level of the Oaktree Maths Passport, and you can find the objectives they are working on below.
We hope you find the resources on this page helpful in enjoying mathematics at home, and much appreciate any support you can give your children. If you have any questions please speak to your class teacher.

Oaktree Maths Passport
What is the Oaktree Maths Passport?
Our Oaktree Maths Passport helps us to develop our mental mathematics and quick recall of key facts. The Passport is broken down into areas of the world, each focussing on different mathematical skills linked to the National Curriculum. To move on to the next level, children have to be able to recall the key facts on at least 3 separate occasions, in less than 30 seconds! For example, they will correctly recall the facts for the 8 times table, in a random order, in just 30 seconds.
Upon completion of a continent, children will receive a certificate to take home which celebrates their success as well as outlining the targets for the next continent.
The levels and targets are shown below, in the order: Europe, Asia, Africa, South Africa, Australasia, Antarctica, North America, South America and finally Globetrotters.
Why is it important?
For children to get the most out of their numeracy lessons, it is important for them to practise their mental recall of basic facts at home. If children are confident with their times tables and number bonds as well as facts about time and measurement they will find it easier to work with numbers in the classroom. The passport develops children’s skills and confidence in mathematics and is a lot of fun!
How can you help at home?
There are lots of ways to help your child at home, you could practice the key facts daily, for example the 8 times table facts, or use one of the websites below:
Every child in school has a personal login for this website. If you are not sure what it is, please ask the class teacher. There are many games including Disco Robot, Water Raider and Moon Mission, aswell as some fun times table songs.
