KS1 Maths Quiz - Year 1 Numbers - Number Patterns (Extending) (Questions)

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 recognising and extending number patterns.

Recognising number patterns is taught very early on in KS1. Once children are familiar with the idea that numbers in a sequence do not always increase or decrease by one, they will be asked to extend sequences, or patterns, which may go up or down in twos, fives or tens.

This quiz will help your child to recognise a number pattern and also to be able to extend it.
