  • Count, read and write numbers to 100 in numerals; count in multiples of twos, fives and tens.
  • Given a number, identify one more and one less.
  • Identify and represent numbers using objects and pictorial representations including the number line, and use the language of: equal to, more than, less than (fewer), most, least.
  • Read and write numbers from 1 to 20 in numerals and words.
Addition and subtraction
  • Read, write and interpret mathematical statements involving addition (+), subtraction (–) and equals (=) signs.
  • Represent and use number bonds and related subtraction facts within 20.
  • Add and subtract one-digit and two-digit numbers to 20, including zero.
  • Solve one-step problems that involve addition and subtraction, using concrete objects and pictorial representations, and missing number problems such as 7 = ? - 9.
Multiplication and division
  • Solve one-step problems involving multiplication and division, by calculating the answer using concrete objects, pictorial representations and arrays with the support of the teacher.

 

 

The following objectives are taught as topics:

Fractions
  • Recognise, find and name a half as one of two equal parts of an object, shape or quantity.
  • Recognise, find and name a quarter as one of four equal parts of an object, shape or quantity.

Measurement

  • Compare, describe and solve practical problems for:
    • lengths and heights [for example, long/short, longer/shorter, tall/short, double/half];
    • mass/weight [for example, heavy/light, heavier than, lighter than];
    • capacity and volume [for example, full/empty, more than, less than, half, half full, quarter];
    • time [for example, quicker, slower, earlier, later].
  • Measure and begin to record the following:
    • lengths and heights;
    • mass/weight;
    • capacity and volume;
    • time (hours, minutes, seconds).
  • Recognise and know the value of different denominations of coins and notes.
  • Sequence events in chronological order using language, for example, before and after, next, first, today, yesterday, tomorrow, morning, afternoon and evening.
  • Recognise and use language relating to dates, including days of the week, weeks, months and years.
  • Tell the time to the hour and half past the hour and draw the hands on a clock face to show these times.
Geometry: properties of shapes
  • Recognise and name common 2-D and 3-D shapes, including:
    • 2-D shapes, for example, rectangles (including squares), circles and triangles;
    • 3-D shapes, for example, cuboids (including cubes), pyramids and spheres.
Geometry: position and direction
  • Describe position, direction and movement, including whole, half, quarter and three-quarter turns.

 

 

Year 2

The following ongoing objectives are taught throughout our topics, whenever possible:

Number and place value
  • Count in steps of 2, 3, and 5 from 0, and in tens from any number, forward and backward.
  • Recognise the place value of each digit in a two-digit number (tens, ones).
  • Identify, represent and estimate numbers using different representations, including the number line.
  • Compare and order numbers from 0 up to 100; use <, > and = signs.
  • Read and write numbers to at least 100 in numerals and in words.
  • Use place value and number facts to solve problems.
Addition and subtraction
  • Solve problems with addition and subtraction:
    • Using concrete objects and pictorial representations, including those involving numbers, quantities and measures;
    • Applying their increasing knowledge of mental and written methods.
  • Recall and use addition and subtraction facts to 20 and 100:
    • fluently up to 20;
    • related facts to 100.
  • Add and subtract numbers using concrete objects, pictorial representations, and mentally, including:
    • a two-digit number and ones;
    • a two-digit number and tens;
    • two two-digit numbers;
    • adding three one-digit numbers.
  • Show that addition of two numbers can be done in any order (commutative) and subtraction of one number from another cannot.
  • Recognise and use the inverse relationship between addition and subtraction and use this to check calculations and solve missing number problems.
Multiplication and division
  • Recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 2, 5 and 10 multiplication tables, including recognising odd and even numbers.
  • Calculate mathematical statements for multiplication and division within the multiplication tables and write them using the multiplication (×), division (÷) and equals (=) signs.
  • Show that multiplication of two numbers can be done in any order (commutative) and division of one number by another cannot.
  • Solve problems involving multiplication and division, using materials, arrays, repeated addition, mental methods, and multiplication and division facts, including problems in contexts.

 

 

The following objectives are taught as topics:

Fractions
  • Recognise, find, name and write fractions one third, one quarter, two quarters, and three quarters of a length, shape, set of objects or quantity.
  • Write simple fractions for example, half of 6 = 3 and recognise the equivalence of two quarters and one half.

Measurement

  • Choose and use appropriate standard units to estimate and measure to the nearest appropriate unit, using rulers, scales, thermometers and measuring vessels:
    • length/height in any direction (m/cm);
    • mass (kg/g);
    • temperature (°C);
    • capacity (litres/ml).
