- To count reliably with numbers from one to twenty.
- To say which number is one more or one less than a given number from one to twenty.
- To place numbers one to twenty in order.
- To add and subtract two single-digit numbers and count on or back to find the answer using quantities and objects.
- To solve problems, including doubling, halving and sharing.
- To use everyday language to talk about size, weight, capacity, position, distance, time and money to compare quantities and objects to solve problems.
- To explore characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language to describe them.
- To recognise, create and describe patterns.
By the end of KS1 children should be able to:
- Read scales in divisions of ones, twos, fives and tens
- Partition any two-digit number into different combinations of tens and ones, explaining their thinking verbally, in pictures or using apparatus
- Add and subtract any 2 two-digit numbers using an efficient strategy, explaining their method verbally, in pictures or using apparatus (e.g. 48 + 35; 72 – 17)
- Recall all number bonds to and within 10 and use these to reason with and calculate bonds to and within 20, recognising other associated additive relationships (e.g. If 7 + 3 = 10, then 17 + 3 = 20; if 7 – 3 = 4, then 17 – 3 = 14; leading to if 14 + 3 = 17, then 3 + 14 = 17, 17 – 14 = 3 and 17 – 3 = 14)
- Recall multiplication and division facts for 2, 5 and 10 and use them to solve simple problems, demonstrating an understanding of commutativity as necessary
- Identify 1 4 , 1 3 , 1 2 , 2 4 , 3 4 , of a number or shape, and know that all parts must be equal parts of the whole
- Use different coins to make the same amount
- Read the time on a clock to the nearest 15 minutes
- Name and describe properties of 2-D and 3-D shapes, including number of sides, vertices, edges, faces and lines of symmetry.
At the end of KS2, children are assessed against the expected standard in the SATs examinations which take place in May of Year 6.
These examinations assess the skills and knowledge children have acquired in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 as detailed below.
