Autumn Maths Overview:


As mathematicians we will begin by securing our knowledge of recognising and ordering numbers to 100. Our place value work will help develop our understanding on tens and ones and recognising these using a range of

manipulatives. This will link closely to our class texts, where beanstalks will help us count and beans will be used to support this! Our addition work will focus on recapping number bonds, using these to support our addition and subtraction work. We will use a range of concrete resource to support our mental arithmetic as well as begin to explore the written method for addition and subtraction. This will support our learning and understanding of the 2, 5 and 10 times table which we hope to secure by the end of the year.

Spring Maths Overview:


We will start the term focusing on securing our multiplication skills focusing on the 2, 5 and 10 times

tables. This will lead in to supporting our division work, recognising the division symbol and the meaning of this.

This is something we will recap throughout the year and continue to build our fluency with times tables. Our shape work this term will focus on recognising properties of shapes to help us easily identify common shapes. Our shape work will embed our knowledge of both 2D and 3D shapes, helping us compare and identify these in

everyday objects. Near the end of the term, we will begin our work on fractions. We aim to recognise basic

fractions such as half, quarters and these. Building on from these we will become confident creating fractions

and writing these correctly.

Summer Maths Overview:


We will begin by exploring position and direction aiming to use mathematical vocabulary to describe position, direction and movement including movement in a straight line. This will lead us to distinguish between rotation as a turn and in terms of right angles for quarter, half and three-quarter turns (clockwise and anti-clockwise). We will then be focusing on time. We will aim to 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. Once we have secured basic time knowledge we will compare and sequence durations of time. Our work in the Summer term will involve a range of problem solving skills to ensure we recap the fundamental skills leant so far in Year 2

Ask your child to tell you the time

Ask them to time an activity or tell you how long an activity takes.
