KIRFs

To help develop children’s fluency in mathematics we ask them to learn Key Instant Recall Facts (KIRFs). The children should learn these facts so they can instantly recall the answers. This means without working out the answers, or calculating in any way. When children instantly recall a fact correctly on 3 separate occasions it will mean they have Instant Recall and the target will be achieved. Once all KIRFs in this stage have been achieved, your child will be given the next stage to work on. It is expected that each stage will take a year to master. Children will be tested every term on these facts.
