Our Breadth Map shows you just what we will be covering in each area of learning this year.

CLick on the PDF below to see the detail.

Things you can do at home to support learning


Learn number bonds for 10.

0 + 10 = 10       1 + 9 = 10     2 + 8 = 10      3 + 7 = 10     4 + 6 = 10     5 + 5 = 10   

6 + 4 = 10       7 + 3 = 10     8 + 2 = 10      9 + 1 = 10     0 + 10 = 10

Use this to help you work out number bonds for 20.

Can you count on from any number?  Can you count back from any number? .

Can you count back from 50?

Practise reading 2 digit numbers to 50 and above. 

Can  you say how many tens and ones in a 2 digit number?

Ask questions - what is 1 more than... 1 less than....? 

Which number comes before ....? After.....?



Reading & Writing

Read for 10 minutes every day! Reading is good for you. It relaxes you, it takes you to exciting places, it teaches you new things and it is fun.



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

By the end of Year 1 most children should be able to read and spell these common words, they do not fit the phonics rules so children need to learn to 'just know it'.
