Heathrow Primary School

Year 1


This term, the children have focused on learning the topics Place Value and Addition and Subtraction. The children spent time understanding numbers and ways to recognise them. They have focused on how to count objects and now are developing their skills for adding and subtracting these numbers. The children especially enjoyed participating in these lessons when we took them outside for outdoor learning day. The children have also started to practise their maths reasoning and are becoming confident with justifying why they are giving their answer. They all really enjoy when these questions are put into relatable scenarios for them.


As Mathematicians we have covered a range of topics this term. The children have particularly enjoyed the practical element to tasks planned around length and money. They were able to apply their knowledge of the 2, 5 and 10 times tables when counting coins to make specific amounts. The children continue to consolidate their understanding of place value through learning about related facts, number ordering and comparing numbers. The children have been exposed to a wide range of mathematical vocabulary this term which they are beginning to use more independently when answering reasoning questions.
