During our Maths lessons, your child will be encouraged to use concrete objects such as counters, cubes and numicon to secure their understanding of numbers. They will then be moved on to more abstract concepts when they are ready. Every lesson your child will have the opportunity to extend their understanding by answering word problems or applying what they have learnt in a different way.
By the end of Year 1, we expect that your child will be able to:
- Count to and across 100, forwards and backwards, beginning with 0 or 1, or from any given number.
- Count, read and write numbers to 100 in numerals.
- Read, write and interpret mathematical statements involving addition (+), subtraction (-) and equals (=) signs.
- Given a number, identify one more and one less.
- Represent and use number bonds and related subtraction facts within 20.
- Add and subtract one-digit and two-digit numbers to 20, including zero.
- Recognise, find and name a half as one of two equal parts of an object, shape or quantity.
- Recognise, find and name a quarter as one of four equal parts of an object, shape or quantity.
- Measure and begin to record length/height, weight/mass, capacity/volume and time.
- Recognise and know the value of different denominations of coins and notes.
- Sequence events in chronological order using language.
- Recognise and use language relating to dates, including days of the week, weeks, months and years.
- Recognise and name common 2D shapes (e.g. Square, circle, and triangle).
