Maths: What can I practise to help me in Year 1/2?


Know doubles of numbers 1 to 5

1 + 1 = 2        2 + 2 = 4       3 + 3 = 6      4 + 4 = 8     5 + 5 = 10

and begin to know doubles of numbers 6 to 10

6 + 6 = 12     7 + 7 = 14     8 + 8 = 16    9 + 9 = 18      10 + 10 = 20

Practise counting in 1s forwards and back. Can you count to at least 20? Can you count back from 20 to 0?

Can you say 1 more or 1 less than any number to at least 20?

Can you count in 10s?

Learn to count in 2s, 5s and 10s.


Reading and Writing: What can I practise to help me in Year 1/2?

  • Read, read, read!!! Read your reading book, a library book or a book from home every day! Read it aloud to people in your family and challenge them to ask you questions about what you have read.
  • Practise forming all of your letters and numbers correctly.
  • Can you read and spell all of these tricky words? They don't fit a spelling pattern.
  • RWI sounds - Can your child recognise and use the RWI sounds that we use as the building blocks for reading and writing? Children are taught to recognise the sounds within words and use these for reading and spelling. e.g. sh o p  becomes shop,     p ar k becomes park
