Year 2 Maths - Number


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.  
  • recall and use addition and subtraction facts to 20 fluently, and use related facts up to 100.
  • add and subtract numbers 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.
  • 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.   
  • show that multiplication of two numbers can be done in any order.  
  • solve problems involving multiplication and division.


  • recognise, find, name and write fractions of a length, shape, set of objects or number.
  • write simple fractions for example, half of 6.
  • recognise the equivalence of halves and quarters. 

Over the last couple of weeks we have been concentrating on the place value of numbers. We have been looking at the value of each digit and had a go at paritioning different numbers. We are getting very confident at this and have had lots of fun in the process. 


We have also began to compare different numbers. We reminded ourselves about more than and less than before practising comparing different numbers. We were then introduced to ‘Chomp the Greedy Crocodile’ who helped us record which numbers were greater than and less than. We learnt that ‘Chomp’ will always eat the greatest number, which means he will always face the biggest number. We soon became experts at comparing different numbers, using the greater than and less than signs.
