In Year 1 your child will learn about numbers, algebra (symbols), geometry (shapes), measurement and statistics. They will learn to count on their fingers and by using objects. They may start to count in their heads and begin to recognise number patterns like 3+2=5.
If your child has made the expected progress after one year at school they'll be able to:
- solve maths problems up to 10, then up to 20
- count forwards and backwards up to 20, then up to 100.
- know the number before and after any given number
- explore patterns, shapes and measurement
- organize and share objects
- talk about position – eg “I am in front of the tree”, “I am behind you”.
- ask and answer questions – eg “How many chairs are in the classroom?
