# Year 1 Maths Assessment

This assessment contains 10 questions on basic counting, addition and subtraction. You may want to work through it with your child and ask them the questions out loud as they may not be able to read the questions themselves. If they find it tricky on the screen, make it fun for them; use counters or toys and ask them to count actual objects instead of the pictures on the screen. Can they work out the answers themselves? Try to use the language given to see if your child understands basic mathematical language such as 'add', 'less' and 'double'.
