  • When you show me a number, I can tell you what is one more and one less.
  • I can find numbers on a number line when I am solving problems with questions using equal to, more than, less than, most and least.

  • I read and write numbers from 1 to 20 in numbers and words.
  • I know and can use the maths symbols + - and = in a number sentence.
  • I know my number bond facts to 20 - such as 1+5 = 6 and 5 = 6 - 1.
  • I add and subtract numbers up to 20 - such as 5+5 or 12-8.
  • I can solve some number problems such as 7 = ? - 9.


Multiplication Division

  • I answer maths multiplication or division problems with help from an adult and using objects to see what the problem means.



  • I know that a half is one of two equal parts, and I find half of a shape or a set of objects by sharing the shape or set into two equal parts.
