Building on our working on Number and Place Value in Year 2 we would love you to continue to help your children even more with the new methods being introduced to them this year. Again, we have modelled them in the videos found in the sub pages below to help practice at home.
Working At the Expected Standard:
Children should achieve all of the WTS objectives, plus ..
- Add and subtract numbers mentally, including: a 3-digit no and 1s, 10s, 100s.
- Add and sub numbers with up to 3 digits, using formal written methods of columnar add and sub.
- Estimate the answer to a calculation and use inverse operations to check answers.
- Solve problems, inc missing number problems, using number facts, place value, and more complex add/sub.
- Recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 multiplication tables.
- Write and calculate math statements for x and ÷ using the tables they know, including 2-digit numbers times 1-digit numbers, using mental and formal written methods.
- Solve problems and missing number problems, involving x and ÷, including integer scaling problems and correspondence problems in which n objects are connected to m objects.
- Count up and down in tenths; recognise that tenths arise from dividing an object into 10 equal parts and in dividing one-digit numbers or quantities by 10.
- Recognise, find and write fractions of a discrete set of objects: unit fractions and non-unit fractions with small denominators.
- Recognise and use fractions as numbers: unit fractions and non-unit fractions with small denominators.
- Recognise and show, using diagrams, equivalent fractions with small denominators.
- Add and sub fractions with the same denominator within one whole (e.g. ⁵∕₇ + ⅟₇ = ⁶∕₇).
In order to be assessed as secure in their year group, children need to:
- Become fluent with the fundamentals of maths, such as rapidly recalling and applying knowledge
- Reason effectively by using appropriate mathematical language when justifying their answers
- Solve problems by applying their mathematical knowledge in a variety of problems
Working Above the Expected Standard:
To be assessed as 'working at greater depth', children need to meet all of the above objectives confidently, whilst also solving more sophisticated problems. These problems will be working at the current year group context but at a deeper level, often solving a wider range of problems in more than one way and explaining, justifying and evaluating the steps they have undertaken.
