We shall begin this year by exploring place value to help the children develop a thorough understanding of number before moving onto addition and subtraction. The children will work with increasingly larger numbers and learn methods of finding totals and differences.
Later in the year we will move onto shape recognition and the properties of shape. We will also work on our money skills, including coin recognition, making totals of money and finding change.
The children will receive weekly mental maths quizzes and will continue to practise their times tables. Please help your child to practise their 2, 5 and 10 times tables, and also 3 and 11 times tables for Year 2 children.
Number club practise sheets - here are some examples of the kind of sheets we use when we give the children times table challenges. You can use these to help you learn your tables.
Year 2 have been investigating the properties of 3D shapes.
