Maths in Year 1
Year 1 is the first year of Key Stage 1* and is usually the second year of Infant School. The children are usually taught in a combination of ‘carpet time’ where the teacher introduces and teaches a topic to the whole class seated on the carpet and then ‘table time’ when the children split into smaller groups and get to practice the concepts taught on their own or in pairs. The tables are sometimes ‘setted’ to include children of similar ability.
Most children can understand the basic concepts of number, shape and measurement and see mathematics as an exciting and practical element of the curriculum. They say and use the number names. They can count accurately and recognise that numbers may represent a quantity, position or label. Teachers provide a balance of whole-class activity involving counting, problem solving in groups and independent work where children apply and practise their learning. This mix of mental, practical and informal written work engages and motivates children and fosters purposeful attitudes to mathematics.
In Year 1, children develop their understanding of place value and recognise the importance of 10 in the number system. They position numbers on a number track and number line. Children count on or back in ones, twos, fives and tens and develop strategies to add and subtract that relate to counting and their increasing knowledge of number facts.
They name and describe the features of common 2-D shapes and 3-D solids and create pictures and patterns that they can explain. Children begin to use standard units to measure and read time to the hour and half hour.
Below are listed some of the learning objectives for Year 1, which are taken from the National Strategies Primary Framework part of the current National Curriculum. These learning objectives may change when a new curriculum comes into place in September 2013.
