Quite a lot! Recent ( 2014) changes to the curriculum mean that expectations in maths have been raised. If you want to help them with maths at home, you need to know what to expect them to be able to do too.
The year 1 curriculum is divided into 3 areas:
Number is the main area of focus and most of your child’s daily maths lessons will include learning about number.
Here’s the detail:
Number & Place Value
|Count up to 100, starting at any number|
|Read and write numbers to 100|
|Read and write numbers to 20 in words|
|Count on and back in 2s, 5s and 10s to 100|
|Given a number, say the number that is 1 more or 1 less, up to 100|

Addition and Subtraction
|Learn simple addition and subtraction to 20|
|Use and know pairs of numbers that add up to 20 and related subtraction facts e.g. 9 + 11 = 20; 20 – 11 = 9 ; 9 = 20 – 11|
