Year 1 Maths

Welcome to the Year 1 Maths page. Throughout the year we will be following the National Curriculum to develop our skills in Place Value, Number, Measurement and Geometry. We will study our Maths in a variety of different fun and engaging ways.

In Autumn we looked at place value focusing on numbers to 10. We had so much fun using a range of resources such as bar models and part whole model. We learnt lots of new things. 

During the Autumn term, Year 1 have been looking at 2D and 3D shapes. Children have been able to group 3D shapes due to their properties. We also have to ensure that children see the shapes in a varity of orientaions so they develop a deeper understanding of the shape. When looking at 2D shape It is also important that children recognise 2D shapes as FLAT. 

Children have also been able to use 2D and 3d shapes to make patterns based on shape, size and colour. Image result for 3d shapes

Maths in Spring 

This half term we will be focusing on Place Value within 50. Children will develop the ability to count forward and backwards to 50 using number tracks. They will also learn how to group in tens and that 1 ten is equal to ten 1s. To do this children will be using a range or resources such as straws, cubes, lolly pop sticks and ten frames.

We will continue to update the Maths page to inform you of the topics we have covered in class.
