During our mathematics units (which you can find in curriculum overview to see what we are doing each half term) we ensure that all these key skills below are covered. By the end of Year 2, children should be able to do the following;
o The pupil can partition two-digit numbers into different combinations of tens and ones. This may include using apparatus (e.g. 23 is the same as 2 tens and 3 ones which is the same as 1 ten and 13 ones).
o The pupil can add 2 two-digit numbers within 100 (e.g. 48 + 35) and can demonstrate their method using concrete apparatus or pictorial representations.
o The pupil can use estimation to check that their answers to a calculation are reasonable (e.g. knowing that 48 + 35 will be less than 100).
o The pupil can subtract mentally a two-digit number from another two-digit number when there is no regrouping required (e.g. 74 − 33).
o The pupil can recognise the inverse relationships between addition and subtraction and use this to check calculations and work out missing number problems (e.g. Δ − 14 = 28).
o The pupil can recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 2, 5 and 10 multiplication tables to solve simple problems, demonstrating an understanding of commutativity as necessary (e.g. knowing they can make 7 groups of 5 from 35 blocks and writing 35 ÷ 5 = 7; sharing 40 cherries between 10 people and writing 40 ÷ 10 = 4; stating the total value of six 5p coins).
o The pupil can identify 1/3 , 1/4 , 1/2 , 2/4 , 3/4 and knows that all parts must be equal parts of the whole.
