Age: 5 - 6 Years - End of Year 1 Review
The Hedgehogs Summer School includes Arithmetic that a child aged 5–6 would expect to have encountered by the end of School Year 1 . The material is grouped according to the new National Curriculum Attainment Targets for Year 1.

Click here for more detail on how we've updated our Summer Schools for the new National Curriculum.

All children learn and develop at different rates so we would advise you to look at the detail within each school to make sure you choose the package which will best support your child’s learning.

A range of Maths Skills is taught within each Maths Camp, using Video Lessons and Learning Games, with plenty of opportunities for practising and consolidating skills.

Within the Hedgehogs Summer School , your child will explore three Maths Camps:

Camp 1: Understanding Numbers
Counting up to 10
More detail...
Learn to count up to 10, using a number track to start with, including identifying missing numbers and putting the numbers 1 to 10 in the right order. Develop systematic skills for counting objects and practise these skills. Hide

Counting up to 20
More detail...
Learn to count up to 20, using a number track to start with, including inserting missing numbers and putting in the number in between 2 numbers. Develop further counting skills by understanding that counting larger numbers is easier if objects are grouped in tens, and start to use tens and units. Practise counting up to 20 objects. Hide

Counting up to 100
More detail...
Learn about numbers up to 100, first by looking at a 100 square (numbers 1 to 100) and identifying the missing numbers in the whole square, then missing numbers in sections of it and practising identifying the missing number between 2 numbers. Learn about grouping in 10s and using tens and units, including making numbers from tens and units, and identifying numbers made from tens and units. Hide

Camp 2: Knowing Number Facts
Adding 1 to numbers 1 to 9
More detail...
Learn to add 1 to numbers up to 9, using a variety of contexts. This will encourage understanding of adding 1 both as one more object, such as adding one more candle on a cake, as well as jumping on to the next number, using frogs and also number tracks. Practise adding 1 in order and randomly. Hide

Subtracting 1 from numbers 1 to 10
More detail...
Learn to subtract 1 from numbers up to 10, using a variety of contexts. Understanding is developed of ‘one less object’, such as taking away biscuits or bowling pins, as well as counting down in ones, for example using a number track . Practise subtracting 1 in order and randomly. Hide

Adding 1 to numbers up to 30
More detail...
Learn to add 1 to numbers up to 30, developing understanding of adding 1 object, such as penguins, using the starting number to count on from, rather than counting all objects again. Also work on counting on skills, using number tracks, while reinforcing knowledge of numbers up to 30. Practise adding 1. Hide

Subtracting 1 from numbers up to 30
More detail...
Learn to subtract 1 from numbers up to 30, developing understanding of taking away 1 object at a time, such as moles, but also counting back using number tracks. Practise subtracting 1. Hide

Adding and subtracting 2
More detail...
Learn to add 2 to numbers 1 to 9, in a variety of contexts, so that understanding is developed of both adding 2 more objects and of counting on 2. Learn to subtract 2 from numbers up to 10, using a variety of contexts which work both on subtracting objects and counting back. Practise both adding and subtracting 2. Hide

Adding and subtracting 3
More detail...
Learn to add 3 to numbers 1 to 9, in a variety of contexts, so that understanding is developed of both adding 3 more objects and of counting on 3. Learn to subtract 3 from numbers up to 10, using a variety of contexts which work both on subtracting objects and counting back. Practise both adding and subtracting 3. Hide

Adding and subtracting 1, 2 or 3
More detail...
Review adding 1, 2 and 3 to numbers 1 to 9 and subtracting 1, 2 and 3 from numbers up to 10, encouraging quick responses and coping with a mixed range of additions and subtractions. Practise a mixed range of both addition and subtraction. Hide

Camp 3: Calculations
Adding 4 to numbers 1 to 9
More detail...
Learn to add 4 to numbers 1 to 9, using a variety of contexts. Develop a good understanding of adding 4 objects, such as penguins, as well as counting on 4 steps, for example on a number track. Practise adding 4 to aim for instant recall of addition facts such as 9 + 4 = 13. Hide

Adding 5 to numbers 1 to 9
More detail...
Learn to add 5 to numbers 1 to 9, using a variety of contexts. Develop a good understanding of adding 5 objects, such as penguins, as well as counting on 5 steps, for example on a number track. Practise adding 5 to aim for instant recall of addition facts such as 7 + 5 = 12. Hide

Adding 6 to numbers 1 to 9
More detail...
Learn to add 6 to numbers 1 to 9, using a variety of contexts. Develop a good understanding of adding 6 objects, such as penguins, as well as counting on 6 steps, for example on a number track. Practise adding 6 to aim for instant recall of addition facts such as 8 + 6 = 14. Hide

Adding 7 to numbers 1 to 9
More detail...
Learn to add 7 to numbers 1 to 9, using a variety of contexts. Develop a good understanding of adding 7 objects, such as penguins, as well as counting on 7 steps, for example on a number track. Practise adding 7 to aim for instant recall of addition facts such as 9 + 7 = 16. Hide

Adding 8 to numbers 1 to 9
More detail...
Learn to add 8 to numbers 1 to 9, using a variety of contexts. Develop a good understanding of adding 8 objects, such as penguins, as well as counting on 8 steps, for example on a number track. Practise adding 8 to aim for instant recall of addition facts such as 7 + 8 = 15. Hide

Adding 9 to numbers 1 to 9
More detail...
Learn to add 9 to numbers 1 to 9, using a variety of contexts. Develop a good understanding of adding 9 objects, such as penguins, as well as counting on 9 steps, for example on a number track. Practise adding 9 to aim for instant recall of addition facts such as 9 + 9 = 18. Hide

Adding 1 to 9 to numbers 1 to 9
More detail...
Review adding numbers 1 to 9 to each other, looking at ways of making additions easier and quicker, with a particular focus on pairs of numbers that add up to 10, such as 6 + 4 = 10. Practise a mixed range of adding the numbers 1 to 9. Hide

Subtracting single digits from 10
More detail...
Look at subtracting single digits from 10, using fact families to improve understanding and help with instant number bond knowledge. For example, one fact family: 10 – 4 = 6, 10 – 6 = 4, 4 + 6 = 10, 6 + 4 = 10 Practise a mixed range of subtractions from 10. Hide
