## All about Year 2 maths

Welcome to the final year of Key Stage 1 maths! This means that in Year 2, your learners are almost at the end of getting to grips with the basics that they’ll use throughout their maths journey.

This year, they’ll further develop the foundational skills they worked on in Year 1 maths ensuring that they’re well prepared before they move on to Key Stage 2.

### What's taught in Year 2 maths?

The Year 2 maths curriculum covers seven key areas and will build on everything learners covered in Year 1. These include number—place value, number—addition and subtraction, number—multiplication and division, number—fractions, geometry, measurement and statistics.

#### Number

As in Year 1, the area of number is broken down into the four categories of place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, and fractions

In addition to practising what they have learned in Year 1, Year 2 students will learn:

• To write numbers 0 to 100 using words
• To work with numbers up to 100 as they add, subtract, multiply, and divide
• To count in 10s and 3s
• The 2, 5 and 10 times tables
• To write and identify a range of different fractions including ½, ⅓, and ¼
• To identify equivalent fractions

#### Geometry

Your learners will delve a little deeper into the topic of geometry in Year 2 maths covering shapes, position and direction. They’ll be taught how to:

• Identify the different properties of 2D and 3D shapes (faces, edges, and vertices)
• Continue and create different patterns and sequences

#### Measurement

In Year 2 learners will cover many aspects of measuring, time, and money. As well as what they learned in Year 1, by the end of Year 2 they’ll know how to:

#### Statistics

Year 2 maths is when children will be introduced to statistics. They’ll be taught how to:

• Read different types of graphs and tables such as pictograms and tally charts
• Record, interpret and compare data

### Are there Year 2 maths assessments?

There are no maths assessments in Year 2. Class teachers will instead monitor their students’ progress using a range of informal assessment strategies throughout the year.

### How can I help my child with maths Year 2?

The best way to ensure your child gets the best out of their maths education in Year 2 is to ensure they’re getting lots of time to practise the basic (but important!) skills they’re learning!

There are lots of ways to help with maths for Year 2 students, such as practising skills like counting or doing a few simple sums on a daily basis. You could also try out these 45 Year 2 maths questions to test your learners’ skills!

Another option is the incredible DoodleLearning maths app which offers a super interactive way for your learners to get in that all-important maths practice!

## FAQs about Year 2 maths

By the end of Year 2, students should be comfortable working with numbers up to 100 across the four operations (+, -, ÷, x). They should know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables and be able to work with simple fractions.

They should be able to tell the time to the nearest 5-minute interval, describe 2D and 3D shapes by their properties, and read simple charts such as pictograms and tally charts.

As they come to the end of their Key Stage 1 journey for maths Year 2 students will be required to meet a whole host of statutory requirements before they are ready for Year 3 maths and Key Stage 2.
