The 2014 National Curriculum states that children need to be able to read and write the following in numerals and words:

**Year 1 - 1 to 20 **

1 = one

2 = two

3 = three

4 = four

5 = five

6 = six

7= seven

8= eight

9 = nine

10 = ten

11 = eleven

12 = twelve

13 = thirteen

14 = fourteen

15 = fifteen

16 = sixteen

17 = seventeen

18 = eighteen

19 = nineteen

20 = twenty

**Year 2 – Up to 100 / one hundred**

Children would need to learn the additional spelling of the remaining tens:

30 = thirty

40 = forty

50 = fifty

60 = sixty

70 = seventy

80 = eighty

90 = ninety

**Year 3 – Up to 1000 or one thousand **

Children would just need to learn the spelling of 'hundred' and consolidate number spellings from previous years.

For example 999 nine hundred and ninety nine.

They may also learn to spell the word 'thousand'

**Year 4 – Up to 10,000 or ten thousand **

Children would just need to learn the spelling of 'thousand' and consolidate number spellings from previous years.

For example 9,999 nine thousand, nine hundred and ninety nine.

**Year 5 – Up to at least 1,000,000 or one million **

Children would consolidate spellings from previous years to form larger numbers.

For example 99,999 ninety nine thousand, nine hundred and ninety nine

They may also learn to spell and use the word 'million'

**Year 6 – Up to 10,000,000 or ten million**

Children would consolidate spellings from previous years to form even larger numbers.

For example 9,999,999 nine million, nine hundred and ninety nine thousand, nine hundred and nine
