Chopwell Primary School Mathematics Curriculum
Year 2 Yearly Teaching Programme
Understanding and investigating with numbers
Place value, ordering and rounding
- Continue to count forwards and backwards in ones and tens from any number to 100 and beyond to establish fluency, especially across boundaries of 10s and 100s.
- Read and write numbers to at least 100 in numerals and words.
- Compare and order numbers from 0 up to 100; use >, < and = signs.
- Identify, represent and estimate numbers using different representations, including the number line and spatial representations.
- Recognize the place value of each digit in a two-digit number (tens, ones)
- Begin to understand zero as a place holder.
- Partition numbers in different ways e.g. 23 = 20 + 3 and 23 = 10 + 13 to support subtraction.
- Understand e.g. 23 as20 + 3 and as 2 tens and 3 ones.
- Use place value and number facts to solve problems.
- Apply understanding of the number system to solve problems and puzzles involving numbers, money or measures. Explain methods and reasoning orally and in writing, including using diagrams and symbols.
Properties of numbers and number sequences
- Count in steps of 2, 3 and 5 from 0 and in tens from any number, forward and back. Counting in steps of three will support later understanding of a third.
- Find 10 more or 10 less than any given number.
- Recognize patterns in numbers to and beyond 100.
- Recognize and extend number sequences formed by counting from any number in steps of constant size.
- Apply understanding of number properties to solve routine and non-routine problems and puzzles involving numbers, money or measure.
- Explore and discuss patterns, properties and relationships that arise in the number system using appropriate mathematical vocabulary.
- Develop lines of enquiry through conjecturing relationships and generalizations and testing ideas. Identify examples for which a statement is true or false.
Fractions, decimals and percentages, ratio and proportion
- Use fractions as ‘fractions of’ discrete (e.g. countables) and continuous (e.g. liquid) quantities by solving problems using shapes, objects and quantities.
- Connect unit fractions to equal sharing and grouping, to numbers when they can be calculated and to measures, finding fractions of lengths, quantities, sets of objects and shapes.
- Recognize, find, name and write fractions 1/3 , ¼, 2/4, and ¾ of a length, shape and set of objects or quantity.
- Write simple fractions e.g. ½ of 6 = 3 and recognize the equivalence of 2/4 and ½ .
- Count in fractions up to 10 starting at any number and using the ½ and 2/4 equivalence on the number line e.g. 1 ¼ , 1 2/4, (or 1 ½ ) 1 ¾ , 2. Reinforce the concept of fractions as numbers and that they can add up to more than one.
- Apply understanding of fractions to solve routine and non-routine problems and puzzles involving numbers, shapes, money or measures. Explain methods and reasoning orally and in writing, including using diagrams and symbols
