Year 2 Mathematics

Autumn

Number: Place Value

  • Read and write numbers to at least 100 in numerals and in words.
  • Recognise the place value of each digit in a two digit number (tens, ones).
  • Identify, represent and estimate numbers using different representations including the number line.
  • Compare and order numbers from 0 up to 100; use <, > and = signs.
  • Use place value and number facts to solve problems.
  • Count in steps of 2, 3 and 5 from 0, and in tens from any number, forwards and backwards.

Number: Addition and Subtraction

  • 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 ones; a two-digit number and tens; two two-digit numbers; adding three one-digit numbers.
  • Show that the addition of two numbers can be done in any order (commutative) and subtraction of one number from another cannot.
  • 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.
  • Recognise and use the inverse relationship between addition and subtraction and use this to check calculations and solve missing number problems.

Measurement: Money

  • Recognise and use symbols for pounds (£) 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.

Number: Multiplication and Division

  • Recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 2, 5 and 10 times- tables, including recognising odd and even numbers.
  • Calculate mathematical statements for multiplication and division within the multiplication tables and write them using the multiplication (×), division (÷) and equals (=) sign.
  • Solve problems involving multiplication and division, using materials, arrays, repeated addition, mental methods and multiplication and division facts, including problems in contexts.
  • Show that the multiplication of two numbers can be done in any order (commutative) and division of one number by another cannot.

Statistics

  • Interpret and construct simple pictograms, tally charts, block diagrams and simple tables.
  • Ask and answer simple questions by counting the number of objects in each category and sorting the categories by quantity.
  • Ask and answer questions about totalling and comparing categorical data.

Number: Fractions

  • Recognise, find, name and write fractions 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 2/4 and 3/4of a length, shape, set of objects or quantity.
  • Write simple fractions for example,
  • 1/2 of 6 = 3 and recognise the equivalence of 2/4 and 1/2.

Geometry: Properties of Shape

  • Identify and describe the properties of 2-D shapes, including the number of sides and line symmetry in a vertical line.
  • 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.

Summer

Measurement: Length and Height

  • Choose and use appropriate standard units to estimate and measure length/height in any direction (m/cm); mass (kg/g); temperature (°C); capacity (litres/ml) to the nearest appropriate unit, using rulers, scales, thermometers and measuring vessels.
  • Compare and order lengths, mass, volume/capacity and record the results using >, < and =.

Geometry: Position and Direction

  • Use mathematical vocabulary to describe position, direction and movement including movement in a straight line and distinguishing between rotation as a turn and in terms of right angles for quarter, half and three-quarter turns (clockwise and anti-clockwise).
  • Order and arrange combinations of mathematical objects in patterns and sequences.

Measurement: Time

  • Tell and write the time to five minutes, including quarter past/to the hour and draw the hands on a clock face to show these times. Know the number of minutes in an hour and the number of hours in a day.
  • Compare and sequence intervals of time.

Measurement: Mass, Capacity and Temperature

  • Choose and use appropriate standard units to estimate and measure length/height in any direction (m/cm); mass (kg/g); temperature (°C); capacity (litres/ml) to the nearest appropriate unit, using rulers, scales, thermometers and measuring vessels
  • Compare and order lengths, mass, volume/capacity and record the results using >, < and =
