Year 2
The Year 2 national curriculum introduces the following topics:
 recognise, find, name and write fractions 1/3 , 1/4 , 2/4 and 3/4 of a length, shape, set of objects or quantity
 write simple fractions, for example 1/2 of 6 = 3 and recognise the equivalence of 2/4 and 1/2
The Year 2 national curriculum introduces the following topics:
 order and arrange combinations of mathematical objects in patterns and sequences
 use mathematical vocabulary to describe position, direction and movement, including movement in a straight line and distinguishing between rotation as a turn and in terms of right angles for quarter, half and threequarter turns (clockwise and anticlockwise)
The Year 2 national curriculum introduces the following topics:
 identify and describe the properties of 2D shapes, including the number of sides, and line symmetry in a vertical line
 identify and describe the properties of 3D shapes, including the number of edges, vertices and faces
 identify 2D shapes on the surface of 3D shapes, [for example, a circle on a cylinder and a triangle on a pyramid]
 compare and sort common 2D and 3D shapes and everyday objects
The Year 2 national curriculum introduces the following topics:
 choose and use appropriate standard units to estimate and measure length/height in any direction (m/cm); mass (kg/g); temperature (°C); capacity (litres/ml) to the nearest appropriate unit, using rulers, scales, thermometers and measuring vessels
 compare and order lengths, mass, volume/capacity and record the results using >, < and =
 recognise and use symbols for pounds (£) and pence (p); combine amounts to make a particular value
 find different combinations of coins that equal the same amounts of money
 solve simple problems in a practical context involving addition and subtraction of money of the same unit, including giving change
 compare and sequence intervals of time
 tell and write the time to five minutes, including quarter past/to the hour and draw the hands on a clock face to show these times
 know the number of minutes in an hour and the number of hours in a day
The Year 2 national curriculum introduces the following topics:
 count in steps of 2, 3, and 5 from 0, and in 10s from any number, forward and backward
 recognise the place value of each digit in a twodigit number (10s, 1s)
 identify, represent and estimate numbers using different representations, including the number line
 compare and order numbers from 0 up to 100; use <, > and = signs
 read and write numbers to at least 100 in numerals and in words
 use place value and number facts to solve problems
The Year 2 national curriculum introduces the following topics:
 solve problems with addition and subtraction:

 using concrete objects and pictorial representations, including those involving numbers, quantities and measures
 applying their increasing knowledge of mental and written methods
 recall and use addition and subtraction facts to 20 fluently, and derive and use related facts up to 100
 add and subtract numbers using concrete objects, pictorial representations, and mentally, including:

 a twodigit number and 1s
 a twodigit number and 10s
 2 twodigit numbers
 adding 3 onedigit numbers
 show that addition of 2 numbers can be done in any order (commutative) and subtraction of 1 number from another cannot
 recognise and use the inverse relationship between addition and subtraction and use this to check calculations and solve missing number problems
The Year 2 national curriculum introduces the following topics:
 recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 2, 5 and 10 multiplication tables, including recognising odd and even numbers
 calculate mathematical statements for multiplication and division within the multiplication tables and write them using the multiplication (×), division (÷) and equals (=) signs
 show that multiplication of 2 numbers can be done in any order (commutative) and division of 1 number by another cannot
 solve problems involving multiplication and division, using materials, arrays, repeated addition, mental methods, and multiplication and division facts, including problems in contexts
The Year 2 national curriculum introduces the following topics:
 interpret and construct simple pictograms, tally charts, block diagrams and tables
 ask and answer simple questions by counting the number of objects in each category and sorting the categories by quantity
 askandanswer questions about totalling and comparing categorical data
