Year 1 Maths

Year 1 child writing numbers

During Year 1 your child will get to grips with maths in a very hands-on way, investigating, counting, playing number games and using everyday objects to help them solve problems and do simple calculations.

You can support them at home with our Year 1 maths worksheets, covering all the core skills they are acquiring such as using number lines, simple addition and subtraction, money, doubling and halving, telling the time to the hour and half hour, measuring, naming 2D and 3D shapes and collecting and recording data.
