By the end of Year 2 most children should be able to:

Number and Place Value

• count in steps of 2, 3, and 5 from 0, and in tens from any number, forward or backward

• recognise the place value of each digit in a two-digit number (tens, ones: 27 is 20 + 7)

• identify, represent and estimate numbers in different ways , 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 numbers and words

• use place value and number facts to solve problems

• solve problems with addition and subtraction

• use objects and pictures, 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, (20 + 0 = 20, 19 + 1 = 20, 18 + 2 = 20 etc) and derive and use related facts up to 100

Add and subtract numbers using objects, pictures and mentally, including:

• a two-digit number and ones (23 + 5=/ 42 – 4 =)

• a two-digit number and tens (26 + 30/ 64 – 20 =)

• two two-digit numbers (31 + 46 =/52 – 21 =)

• adding three one-digit numbers (9 + 6 + 4 =)

• show that addition of two numbers can be done in any order and subtraction of one number from another cannot

• recognise and use the inverse relationship between addition and subtraction and use this to check calculations and missing number problems

Multiplication and Division

• remember and use multiplication and division facts for the 2, 5 and 10 multiplication tables, including recognising odd and even numbers

• write a number sentence for multiplication and division using the correct multiplication (×), division (÷) and equals (=) signs

• show that multiplication of two numbers can be done in any order, and division of one number by another cannot

• solve problems involving multiplication and division, using arrays, repeated addition, mental methods, and multiplication and division facts, including problems in context

Fractions

• recognise, find, name and write the correct fractions:  1/3 , ¼ , 2/4  and ¾ of a length, a shape, a set of objects or a quantity

• write simple fractions for example, ½ of 6 = 3 and recognise the equivalence of  2/4 and ½

Measurement

• 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

Properties of Shapes

• identify and describe the properties of 2-D shapes, including the number of sides and line symmetry in a vertical line

• identify and describe the properties of 3-D shapes, including the number of edges, vertices and faces

• identify 2-D shapes on the surface of 3-D shapes [for example, a circle on a cylinder and a triangle on a pyramid]

• compare and sort common 2-D and 3-D shapes and everyday objects.

Position and Direction

• 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 three-quarter turns (clockwise and anti-clockwise).

Statistics

• interpret and construct simple pictograms, tally charts, block diagrams and simple tables

• ask and answer simple questions by counting the number of objects in each category and sorting the categories by quantity
