Learning Outcome 1:The learner will be able to recognise, describe and represent numbers and their relationships, and to count, estimate, calculate and check with competence and confidence in solving problems.
Assessment Standard 1.1: We know this when the learner counts to at least 100 everyday objects reliably;
Assessment Standard 1.7: We know this when the learner solves and explains solutions to practical problems that involve equal sharing and grouping and that lead to solutions that also include unitary fractions (e.g. ¼);
Assessment Standard 1.8: We know this when the learner can perform calculations, using appropriate symbols, to solve problems;
Assessment Standard 1.10: We know this when the learner uses the following techniques:
1.10.1 building up and breaking down numbers;
1.10.2 doubling and halving;
1.10.3 using concrete apparatus (e.g. counters);
1.10.4 numberlines;
Learning Outcome 4:The learner will be able to use appropriate measuring units, instruments and formulae in a variety of contexts.
Assessment Standard 4.2: We know this when the learner names in order the days of the week and the months of the year;
Assessment Standard 4.3: We know this when the learner calculates elapsed time;
Learning Outcome 5:The learner will be able to collect, summarise, display and critically analyse data in order to draw conclusions and make predictions, and to interpret and determine chance variation.
Assessment Standard 5.1: We know this when the learner collects data (alone and/or as a member of a group or team) in the classroom and school environment to answer questions posed by the teacher (e.g. ‘how many learners are there in each classroom?’);
Assessment Standard 5.4: We know this when the learner draws pictures and constructs pictographs that have a 11 correspondence between own data and representations;
Assessment Standard 5.5: We know this when the learner describes own or a peer’s collection of objects, explains how it was sorted, and answers questions about it.
