In Year 2 we expect that children are able to use their knowledge of place value to help them to solve problems within addition and subtraction. We use dienes to create numbers, to add and subtract.
To consolidate learning and secure quick recall of addition and subtraction facts you could ask your child to add 2 1 digit numbers eg 7+8=. Quick recall is vital to Year 2 as it underpins and supports the development of our maths ability.
Knowing 7+8=15 means we also know 8+7=15. We will then be able to derive subtraction facts such as 15-8=7 and 15-7=8. Furthermore, we should then know and understand 70+80=150, 80+70=150, 150-70=80 and 150-80=70.....Magic!
We are always working on our quick recall of number bonds to 10 and 20 (see videos below),
For multiplication and division support see your child's learning log.
We are working on 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s.
