Year 2 Maths

In maths we will start the term leaning about place value.  We will partition 2 digit numbers into tens and ones and understand the value of them.  We will then use this to help us to add and subtract numbers using a number line.  We will learn about money and the different coins that we use.  We will make totals using different combinations of coins and solve problems involving money.  We will explore the concepts the concepts of multipliction and division and recap on how to count in 2s, 5s and 10s, before introducting 3s.


Children will be taught how to tell the time, this includes o'clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to.  We will also learn how to tell the time to the nearest 5 minutes.  We will explore the properties of shapes, including 2D and 3D, and will begin to recognise patterns and sequences.  We will introduce fractions and children will learn to recognise fractions and find fractions in a group of objects or an amount.  We will continue to practise times tables to include 2s, 5s, 10s, and 3's  Throughout this term, children will be problem solving using strategies that were covered in the previous term.


This term, as well as consolidating and applying previous learning, we will  measure volume, capacity and temperature using a range of scales.  We will apply our learning to a range of problems and investigations.
