Year 2: Number and Place Value

New Maths Curriculum (2014): Year 2 objectives.

Using materials and a range of representations, pupils should practise counting, reading, writing and comparing numbers to at least 100 and solving a variety of related problems to develop fluency. They should count in multiples of three to support their later understanding of a third.  

As they become more confident with numbers up to 100, pupils should be introduced to larger numbers to develop further their recognition of patterns within the number system and represent them in different ways, including spatial representations. 

Pupils should partition numbers in different ways (e.g. 23 = 20 + 3 and 23 = 10 + 13) to support subtraction. They become fluent and apply their knowledge of numbers to reason with, discuss and solve problems that emphasise the value of each digit in two-digit numbers. They begin to understand zero as a place holder.
