Year 2 Mathematics Skill Progression

Year 2 Non-Negotiables

IF A CHILD HAS NOT GOT ALL THE OBJECTIVES BELOW THEY CANNOT MEET THE STANDARD, EVEN WITH 75% OR MORE

  • read scales* in divisions of ones, twos, fives and tens
  • partition any two-digit number into different combinations of tens and ones, explaining their thinking verbally, in pictures or using apparatus
  • add and subtract any 2 two-digit numbers using an efficient strategy, explaining their method verbally, in pictures or using apparatus (e.g. 48 + 35; 72 – 17)
  •  recall all number bonds to and within 10 and use these to reason with and calculate bonds to and within 20, recognising other associated additive relationships (e.g. If 7 + 3 = 10, then 17 + 3 = 20; if 7 – 3 = 4, then 17 – 3 = 14; leading to if 14 + 3 = 17, then 3 + 14 = 17, 17 – 14 = 3 and 17 – 3 = 14)
  • recall multiplication and division facts for 2, 5 and 10 and use them to solve simple problems, demonstrating an understanding of commutativity as necessary
  • identify 1 4 , 1 3 , 1 2 , 2 4 , 3 4 , of a number or shape, and know that all parts must be equal parts of the whole
  • use different coins to make the same amount
  • read the time on a clock to the nearest 15 minutes
  • name and describe properties of 2-D and 3-D shapes, including number of sides, vertices, edges, faces and lines of symmetry.

Place value

 

3 weeks

  • Count in 2, 3, 5 and 10 from any number forwards and backwards  
  • Recognise the place value of each digit in a two-digit number (tens and ones).
  • Partition 2 digit numbers into tens and ones (using resources) and using different combination of tens and ones, explaining thinking verbally, with pictures or apparatus.
  • Identify, represent and estimate numbers using different representations, including the number line ( scales of 1,2,5 and 10 and scales where not all numbers are given and estimate points in between)
  • Compare and order numbers to 100 using <,>, = (link to measure/ time)

  • Solve simple problems in a practical context involving addition and subtraction of money of the same unit, including giving change.
  • Solve complex problems and explain their thinking e.g. 29+17= 15 + 4 + ____ ;‘together Jack and Sam have £14. Jack has £2 more than Sam. How much money does Sam have? etc.)
