Year 1 Block E – Securing number facts, relationships and calculating

The focuses of mathematics learning within this block are:

  • Counting on and back in 1s, 2s, 5s, 10s
  • Combining groups of 2,5,10; sharing in equal groups
  • Doubles of numbers to 10
  • Describing patterns and relationships involving numbers or shapes and testing examples that fit conditions
  • Solving problems involving counting. adding, subtracting, doubling or halving of numbers, measures or money
  • Representing and interpreting problems using numbers, practical materials and diagrams
  • Describing and recording addition and subtraction number sentences
  • Halves and quarters in context
The objectives for the block are listed in the table – the right hand column indicates how the objectives might be addressed in the units
