Maths Overview for Year 1
These are the areas of Maths that Year 1 will be focusing on this year.
We will be using the concrete, pictorial and abstract approach.
In Focused Provision we provide children the opportunity to consolidate
what they have learned.
Every two weeks your teacher will set you homework tasks on the Top Marks website.
The links will be sent to you via Parents2Teacher email and will link to our White Rose Maths Scheme.
You will always have an activity which you should be familiar
with and one which will stretch you more!
For the next two weeks we will be working on Addition and Number bonds to 10/20..
Daily tasks can be found on Seesaw or sent by email. These will be a Phonics, Reading, Maths, English and Topic activity.
In school, we follow the White Rose scheme of Learning, so our current unit for maths this half-term is addition and number bonds
