Developing Numeracy In Year 1
As they move out of Reception, children in Year 1 begin to study the National Curriculum for Mathematics. They continue to work with practical apparatus and real objects (called 'manipulatives'). to help them visualise concepts such as number bonds (3+7=10, 13+7-=20). They start to look at telling the time and calculate amounts of money. The ideas of multiplication and division are developed through grouping and sharing.
