# Year 1 Calculation - Addition and Total

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Maths and Numeracy for children aged 5 and 6 in year 1. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with finding the total.

Understanding and using the words associated with addition is an important first step when calculating. Recognising that 'finding the total' means finding how much or how many there are altogether, especially when groups of numbers or objects are added, is important as 'total' is one of the first addition words Year 1 children will encounter.
