Maths Summer 1

We follow a maths mastery approach at St. George's and as such, we are spending a long time on number (place value), addition and subtraction. When we are secure in the Year 1 concepts, we will move on to incorporating more complex ideas into our lessons, always drawing on previous learning in order to make connections. The aim is to become fluent in number facts, be able to represent what we know in many different ways and make links between areas of knowledge - thus becoming maths masters!
At St. George's, we believe everyone can master maths.
With hard work and encouragement, we can all achieve!

Summer 1 Learning

These are our teaching points for these units of learning. Please find Knowledge Organisers to download at the bottom of each page.




identify and describe the properties of 2-D shapes, including the number of sides and line symmetry in a vertical line

identify and describe the properties of 3-D shapes, including the number of edges,vertices and faces
identify 2-D shapes on the surface of 3-D shapes, [for example, a circle on a cylinder and a triangle on a pyramid]

compare and sort common 2-D and 3-D shapes and everyday objects.
choose and use appropriate standard units to estimate and measure length/height in any direction (m/cm); mass (kg/g); temperature (°C); capacity (litres/ml) to the nearest appropriate unit, using rulers, scales, thermometers and measuring vessels

compare and order lengths, mass, volume/capacity and record the results using >, < and =

recognise and use symbols for pounds (£) and pence (p); combine amounts to make a particular value

find different combinations of coins that equal the same amounts of money
solve simple problems in a practical context involving addition and subtraction of money of the same unit, including giving change
 compare and sequence intervals of time

tell and write the time to five minutes, including quarter past/to the hour and draw the hands on a clock face to show these times

know the number of minutes in an hour and the number of hours in a day


I will continue to set Mathletics homework each week. It will be set on Friday and will be due the next Wednesday. It will always complement the work we are doing in class.
Parents, for help using Mathletics please follow the link below:
Children, if you don't understand something, click the 'i' in the top-tight corner. This will give you an explanation if you follow the arrows on the right.

Times Table Rockstars

The children will have log ins for Times Tables Rockstars. Please make sure you support your child in learning their times tables each week.
Make sure you challenge each other!
