Key Instant Recall Facts - KIRFs
To support children with their mathematical fluency, they will be given Key Instant Recall Facts (KIRFs) each half term to practise and learn at home.
These are sent home as well as shared on Google Classroom. You can also access a copy below. They include practical ideas to assist your child in grasping the key facts. Recall can also be practised using the Maths Shed website, which each child has access to. The KIRFs are also practised regularly in school as part of our daily fluency sessions. It is important that they know these thoroughly and can recall specific facts instantly.
