These are the key skills that each child will be working towards in Year 1
By the end of Year One all children should be able to confidently:
- Count on and back in ones to and from 100 and from any single-digit or 2-digit number.
- Count on and back in tens from any 1-digit or 2-digit number, e.g. 23, 33, 43, 53... Continue to just over 100.
- Locate any number on a 1-100 grid or a beaded line 0-100.
- Know number bonds to 10, e.g. 5 + 5, 6 + 4, etc. Also know what is left if objects are taken from 10, e.g. 10 fingers, fold down 4, leaves 6 standing.
- Begin to be aware of unit patterns, e.g.
2 + 4 = 6 7 + 4 = 11
12 + 4 = 16 17 + 4 = 21
22 + 4 = 26 etc. 27 + 4 = 31 etc.
- Recognise the + and – and = signs, and use these to read and write simple additions and subtractions.
- Add small numbers by counting on and subtract small numbers by counting back
- Recognise doubles to double 6 and find related halves (half even numbers ≤12).
- Recognise the difference between 2-D and 3-D shapes; identify and describe common 2-D and 3-D shapes.
- Recognise and compare objects according to height or length, weight or capacity, using appropriate mathematical language. E.g. the tree is taller than the bush, the bag is heavier than the shoes, the teapot holds more than the jug.
- Tell the time to the half hour on analogue and digital clocks.
- Sort items into lists or tables.
