## All about Year 1 maths

The Year 1 maths curriculum is where learners will begin their Key Stage 1 journey. This year is all about learning the basics across six different fundamental areas of maths.

The skills they’ll begin to learn in Year 1 will prepare them for all that’s to come as they move through their primary school education and beyond!

## What maths is taught in Year 1?

Maths for Year 1 consists of six key areas and will help learners get to grips with the foundational skills they’ll need in each. Let’s break these down below.

### Number

The subject of number is further broken down into four categories; place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, and fractions.

Within this, your Year 1 students will learn:

### Measurement

The topic of measurement covers measuring, time and money. In Year 1, learners will cover:

• Transitioning from using non-standard units of measure to standard units of measure
• The value of all of the different coins and notes
• How to tell the time to the nearest hour and the nearest half hour

### Shapes/Geometry

Students will cover the basics of shape and direction in Year 1. This means that by the end of the year, they’ll be able to:

• Identify different 2D and 3D shapes
• Use whole, half, and quarter turns to describe movement and direction

## Are there Year 1 maths assessments?

There are no maths assessments in Year 1. In place of formal assessments, teachers will monitor their student’s progress throughout the year using a range of informal assessment strategies.

## How can I help my child with maths Year 1?

A great way to give your child some Year 1 maths help is to give them lots of practice at the different skills they’re learning. Our fantastic maths app has thousands of fun and interactive curricular-aligned games that your little learner is sure to love.

## FAQs about Year 1 maths?

By the end of Year 1, your students should have a firm grasp of the numbers 0 to 100. Additionally, they should be able to perform simple operations (+, -, ÷, x) on numbers up to 20. They should be able to identify a range of 2D and 3D shapes, all of the different coins and notes, and be able to use simple units of measurement.

Within the national curriculum for maths Year 1 students will be required to meet a whole host of statutory requirements before they move on to Year 2.
