Year 2 Mathematics

The long term plan below shows the order in which units are taught and approximately how many weeks are spent on each unit.

These are broken down further into the small steps for each unit of work. All small steps involve an element of reasoning and problem solving and link to the National Curriculum.

Step 20 Compare number sentences

Step 21 Missing number problems


National Curriculum Links:

Pupils should be taught to:

  • solve problems with addition and subtraction:

    • using concrete objects and pictorial representations, including those involving numbers, quantities and measures

    • applying their increasing knowledge of mental and written methods

  • recall and use addition and subtraction facts to 20 fluently, and derive and use related facts up to 100

  • add and subtract numbers using concrete objects, pictorial representations, and mentally, including:

    • a two-digit number and 1s

    • a two-digit number and 10s

    • 2 two-digit numbers

    • adding 3 one-digit numbers

  • show that addition of 2 numbers can be done in any order (commutative) and subtraction of 1 number from another cannot

  • recognise and use the inverse relationship between addition and subtraction and use this to check calculations and solve missing number problems

Shape

Step 1 Recognise 2-D and 3-D shapes

Step 2 Count sides on 2-D shapes

Step 3 Count vertices on 2-D shapes

Step 4 Draw 2-D shapes

Step 10 Count vertices on 3-D shapes

Step 11 Sort 3-D shapes

Step 12 Make patterns with 2-D and 3-D shapes


National Curriculum Links

Pupils should be taught to:

  • identify and describe the properties of 3-D shapes, including the number of edges, vertices and faces

  • identify 2-D shapes on the surface of 3-D shapes, [for example, a circle on a cylinder and a triangle on a pyramid]

  • compare and sort common 2-D and 3-D shapes and everyday objects

Spring

Money

National Curriculum Links:

Pupils should be taught to:

  • recognise and use symbols for pounds (Β£) and pence (p); combine amounts to make a particular value

  • find different combinations of coins that equal the same amounts of money

  • solve simple problems in a practical context involving addition and subtraction of money of the same unit, including giving change

Multiplication and division

National Curriculum Links

Pupils should be taught to:

  • recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 2, 5 and 10 multiplication tables, including recognising odd and even numbers

  • calculate mathematical statements for multiplication and division within the multiplication tables and write them using the multiplication (Γ—), division (Γ·) and equals (=) signs

  • show that multiplication of 2 numbers can be done in any order (commutative) and division of 1 number by another cannot

  • solve problems involving multiplication and division, using materials, arrays, repeated addition, mental methods, and multiplication and division facts, including problems in contexts

Length and height

Pupils should be taught to:

  • choose and use appropriate standard units to estimate and measure length/height in any direction (m/cm); mass (kg/g); temperature (Β°C); capacity (litres/ml) to the nearest appropriate unit, using rulers, scales, thermometers and measuring vessels
