10 Steps to Success - Year 2 - Maths

We’ve broken the year’s key learning into 10 skills. If children can master these in year 1, they will make a flying start to year 2. They won’t necessarily be mastered in order.


Skill 1

To partition two-digit numbers into different combinations of tens and ones.    






Skill 2

Add 2 two-digit numbers within 100 (e.g. 48+36) and can demonstrate methods using apparatus or pictorial representations.    







Step 3

Subtract mentally a two-digit number from another two-digit number when there is no grouping required (e.g. 74-33).    







Step 4

To recognise the inverse relationships between addition and subtraction and use this to check calculations and work out missing number problems (e.g.  -14 = 28).    








Step 5

Recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 2, 5 and 10 multiplication tables to solve simple problems, demonstrating an understanding of commutativity as necessary.    








Step 6

Identify 1/3, 1/4, 1/2, 2/4, 3/4 of shapes and numbers, and know all parts must be equal parts of the whole.    







Step 7

To use different coins to make the same amount.    





Step 8

Read scales in divisions of ones, twos, fives and tens in a practical situation where all numbers on the scale are given.    







Step 9

To read the time on the clock to the nearest 15 minutes.    





Step 10

Name and describe the properties of 2D and 3D shapes
