 count, read, write and order whole numbers, initially to 10, progressing to at least 1,000;
 understand the empty set and the conservation of number;
 understand that the place of the digit indicates its value;
 make a sensible estimate of a small number of objects and begin to approximate to the nearest 10 or 100;
 recognise and use simple everyday fractions. 

KS1.NS.1.2
Patterns, Relationships and Sequences in Number
â€¢ Pupils should be able to:
 copy, continue and devise repeating patterns;
 explore patterns in number tables;
 understand the commutative property of addition and the relationship between addition and subtraction;
 understand the use of a symbol to stand for an unknown number;
 understand and use simple function machines.

KS1.NS.1.3
Operations and their Applications
â€¢ Pupils should be able to:
 understand the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division (without remainders) and use them to solve problems;
 know addition and subtraction facts to 20 and the majority of multiplication facts up to 10 x 10;
