Maths

Maths is a great way

To learn about shapes and space

More about the world we live in

KS1 Maths

KS1 is so much fun

We get to learn about counting

and ordering everyone

We learn which number is first

and which one is last

we also learn about place value

It’s really amazing stuff

and it all helps us when we grow up

to be able to do the maths!

Counting

My teacher tells me to count

and get in order

ones, tens, hundreds

thousands and more.

But sometimes it is hard

especially when it’s not a number

I need to know.

Like if I’m trying to find my place

in a line or a space.

But I try my best

and I’m getting better at it each day

so maybe one day I’ll be able to say

I can count and I can order

Up to a million and beyond!!

Shapes

In math class today we learned about shapes.

The teacher said that a square has four equal sides,

while a rectangle has two pairs of parallel sides.

A triangle has three sides that are equal in length,

while a circle has no corners

and a ball is the shape of a sphere.

Adding one plus one is always two

It’s very simple and easy to do

When we add more, the total grows

And we can see how much we’ve amassed.

With addition, we can keep track

Of just how big our number has become

By adding one more, we get to see

The sum of all that was added before.

Subtraction

Subtraction is the simple act of taking away.

One minus one is nothing, but when you add them back

together they make two once again.

This is the principle that we use in subtraction:

to take away a number, we just subtract it from the other.

We can use this method to find out how much is left

after something has been taken away.

Multiplication

Times tables, what a bore!

You must learn them if you want to soar

Through your math classes with ease

But don’t worry, it won’t be long

Before you’re breezing through each song

Of all the times tables there are

You’ll have them memorized in no time.

Division

When we divide something,

We can see it in smaller parts.

This makes it easier to understand,

And helps us learn about maths.

We can see division in everyday life,

Whenever we share something round.

It’s a way of working out how many there are,

Of anything that we might find.

I can count

I can count from one to ten,

twelve, thirteen, fourteen

fifteen, sixteen, seventeen

eighteen, nineteen and twenty!

I can count higher but I must be careful

or I’ll lose track and get all muddled up.

One hundred, two hundred

three hundred, four hundred

five hundred, six hundred

seven hundred and eight hundred!

Nine thousand, ten thousand

eleven thousand and twelve thousand!

thirteen thousand, fourteen thousand

fifteen thousand and sixteen thousand!

The Place Value of a Number

There’s something quite amazing

About the place value of a number

As we move along the digits

The value of each one is clear

When we add them all together

We get the number that we sought.

A Square, Rectangle and Oval

A square is a shape with four right angles.

It has four sides and four corners.

A square is perfectly symmetrical.

A square is always the same shape, no matter how you look at it.

A rectangle is a shape with four straight sides.

It has two short sides and two long sides.

A rectangle can be any size, big or small.

A rectangle can be symmetrical or not symmetrical

Depending on where you draw the line.

An oval is a shape with one big curve and no angles.

It has two equal lengths and one big curve in the middle.

An oval can be any size, big or small.

An oval can be symmetrical or not symmetrical

Depending on where you draw the line.

Shapes for drawing

Circles, squares, rectangles-

these are our friends

We’ll learn about them in school today

and we’ll never forget

Their shapes are so simple and neat

and easy for us to see

They’re perfect for drawing or painting

or making into a toy.

3D shapes

There are so many 3D shapes

Cube, cylinder, cone, sphere

They all have different features

And can be used in different ways.

Cubes are perfect for building towers

Cylinders are great for making tubes

Cones are perfect for holding sweets

And spheres make great balls.

Telling the time

Tell the time, tell the time

It’s ticking away like a countdown

In hours and minutes and seconds

We keep track of it so we know where we stand

What today has in store for us

What tomorrow may bring

The clock on the wall is our guide

It tells us when to wake up

When it’s time for bed

When to eat and when to work

It helps us make sense of our days

So tell me, what time is it now?

Is it morning or afternoon?

Is it close to supper time?

Telling the time

Tells us what hour it is

And what day it is

A very simple thing

But so important to know

Especially for when we’re late!

We tell the time by looking at a clock

And finding the hour and minute hands

We can tell what time it is by how they point.

I Can Count Money

I can count money, pennies and pounds.

I know what a penny is, and a pound.

I can count up to 20, all on my own.

I know that a penny is worth 1p,

And a pound is worth 100 pennies!!
