Teach your Year 1 maths is a reference guide and home-teaching kit which will help you understand exactly what maths skills your child is expected to have mastered in Year 1.

Primary school teacher and parent Gemma Hainsworth has prepared a mixture of information, tips and activities to ensure that you have the right facts at your fingertips to check your child has fully grasped and achieved each and every Y1 maths skill, using the same methods that they are taught (rather than confusing them with the ones you learned at school!). You'll be able to print off highly targeted worksheets to help them master the essential techniques as they progress through the school year.

In Teach your child Year 1 maths, you’ll discover:

  • The vocabulary/terminology your child is being taught at school, so you can refer to the same concepts at home.
  • An explanation of the methods they use in the classroom so you don’t end up doing more harm than good by trying to teach them in a different way.
  • Why it is so important to talk to your child about their learning so you can ensure they understand maths methods and how to apply them.

'My 5 year old daughter really enjoyed using the colourful worksheets,  as a parent I loved the clear and concise explanations given by the teacher at the beginning. It gave me a clear overview of all the topics my child would be introduced to in year 1, and it has helped me feel more confident supporting her learning.' – Jess
