# Maths

In Year 2 we have a lot of Maths focus on understanding number and place value.  Therefore to help whilst practicing at home we have included, on the sub pages below, written and video examples of the methods we use in school.

## End of Year 2 Maths Expectations

Working Towards the Expected Standard children should be able to:

• Read and write numbers in numerals up to 100
• Partition a two-digit number into tens and ones to demonstrate an understanding of place value
Eg. 79 = 70 + 9
• Add and subtract two-digit numbers and ones, and two-digit numbers and tens
Eg. 23 + 5; 46 + 20; 16 – 5; 88 – 30
• Recall number bonds for 10 and reason about associated facts
Eg. 6 + 4 = 10 , therefore 4 + 6 = 10 and 10 – 6 = 4
• Count in twos, fives and tens from 0 and use this to solve problems
• Know the value of different coins
• Name some common 2-D and 3-D shapes from a group of shapes or from pictures of the shapes and describe some of their properties
Eg. triangles, rectangles, squares, circles, cuboids, cubes, pyramids and spheres

Working at the Expected Standard children should be able to:

• Read scales in divisions of ones, twos, fives and tens
• Partition any two-digit number into different combinations of tens and ones
Eg. 79 = 70 + 9, 60 + 19, 50 + 29, 40 =39 etc
• Add and subtract any 2 two-digit numbers
Eg. 48 + 35 or 72 – 17
• Recall all number bonds within 20, recognising other associated additive relationships
Eg. If 7 + 3 = 10, then 17 + 3 = 20; if 7 – 3 = 4, then 17 – 3 = 14; leading to if 14 + 3 = 17, then 3 + 14 = 17, 17 – 14 = 3 and 17 – 3 = 14
• Recall multiplication and division facts for 2, 5 and 10
• Identify ¼  , 1/3  , ½ , 2/4 , ¾  , of a number or shape, and know that all parts must be equal parts of the whole
• Use different coins to make the same amount
• Read the time on a clock to the nearest 15 minutes
• Name and describe properties of 2-D and 3-D shapes, including number of sides, vertices, edges, faces and lines of symmetry

Working Above the Expected Standard/ Greater Depth children should be able to:

• Read scales where not all numbers on the scale are given and estimate points in between
• Recall and use multiplication and division facts for 2, 5, 10 and 3
• Use reasoning about numbers and relationships to solve more complex problems and explain their thinking
Eg. 29 + 17 = 15 + 4 + ?
• Solve unfamiliar word problems that involve more than one step
Eg. ‘Which has the most biscuits, 4 packets of biscuits with 5 in each packet or 3 packets of biscuits with 10 in each packet?’
• Read the time on a clock to the nearest 5 minutes
• Describe similarities and differences of 2-D and 3-D shapes, using their properties
Eg. that two different 2-D shapes both have only one line of symmetry; that a cube and a cuboid have the same number of edges, faces and vertices, but different dimensions
