Division and Multiplication

Please see the below videos for ways to support division and multiplication for Year 1 at home. Try out the strategy you feel most confident in.


In Year 1, children are taught to: 

  • solve one-step problems involving multiplication and division using concrete objects, pictures and arrays with the support of the teacher.

Division is taught through halving, grouping and sharing small quantities. 

Multiplication is taught through doubling, counting in 2s, 5s and 10s, and finding 'lots of'.


I hope you find these useful.
