On this page you will find out what we have been learning in maths and have access to games that can be played at home to practise these skills more.
How do Year 2s learn maths?
At the start of Year 2, we use equipment to help us (counters, numicon or Dienes - plastic cubes and sticks to represent the tens and ones within a number). As the children gain confidence they use drawings to help them and use 100 squares. Eventually they will be able to do more maths in their heads. If your child is stuck with a game or homework, encourage them to draw the number or use a 100 square to help them.
