In Mathematics during Year 1 the children will learn many new skills including:

Number and Place Value
Children will learn to count, both forwards and backwards, from any number, including past 100. Read and write numbers up to 100 as digits. They will learn to count in 2s, 5s and 10s. Find ‘one more’ or ‘one less’ than a number and use mathematical language such as ‘more’, ‘less’, ‘most’, ‘least’ and ‘equal’


Children will use the +, - and = symbols to write and understand simple number calculations. Add and subtract one- and two-digit numbers, up to 20. They will solve missing number problems, such as 10 – ? = 6 and begin to use simple multiplication by organising and counting objects.


Use practical apparatus to explore different lengths, weights and volumes. Use language such as ‘heavier’, ‘shorter’ and ‘empty’  to compare things they have measured. Recognise the different coins and notes of British currency. Use language of time, such as ‘yesterday’, ‘before’, days of the week and months of the year and to tell the time to the hour and half-hour, including drawing clock faces.


Children will recognise and name some common 2-d shapes, such as squares, rectangles and triangles. Recognise and name some common 3-d shapes, such as cubes, cuboids and spheres. Childre will describe movements, including quarter turns.


Understand 1/4 and 1/2 to explain parts of an object or number of objects.
