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. This may lead to using numbers to represent the objects, number lines to support counting on and also beginning to understand all the language associated with addition.














Three added to eight gives a total of eleven

5 + 6 = 11


Finding the total means adding all the numbers together

To find 'more than', count on from the first number


'Plus' is another way of saying 'add'

Counting on from 9 to 16 gives an answer of 7


To find a total, all the numbers must be added together

'Altogether' is another addition clue word


Working out what must be added to 5 to get to 9 gives an answer of 4

Adding up can be done in any order!
