Maths in Year 2

Our Maths lessons are fun, practical and engaging! At Mossley we think it is important to ensure that all children gain the skills, knowledge and understanding that will ensure that they grow to be successful Mathematicians. In Year 2, we like to put our Maths topics into context so our children can use Maths successfully day to day in the outside world.

Which topics do we cover in Year 2?

  • Number and Place Value.
  • Addition and Subtraction.
  • Multiplication and Division.
  • Fractions.
  • Measurement. 
  • Geometry- properties of shape.
  • Geometry- position and movement.
  • Statistics.

How can you help your child?

 

  • Practise counting in steps of 2, 5, 10 and then move onto steps of 3 and 4.
  • Practise the 2x, 5x, and 10x tables and then move onto the 3x and 4x tables.
  • Use Maths when you are 'out and about', for example if you are shopping ask your child to work out the total and the money to use, see how many shapes are around and the properties of these.
  • Read our bulletin which will inform you of the Maths topics that your child is currently covering.‚Äč

If you have any questions about any of our Maths topics or the methods that we use then please come in and talk to your child's class teacher.
