Year 1 Calculation - Addition

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 counting and understanding addition.

Addition is the first number operation usually taught in Year 1. It begins with combining two groups of objects and then counting them to find a total.
