Multiplication and Division
This term we are learning to understand how to solve a range of multiplication and division problems. When looking at multiplication we will explore the concepts of 'lots of' and 'groups of' and encourage children to use these when solving arithmetic and word problems. We will progress onto using arrays to solve unknown multiplication problems. We will also focu on recalling the 2, 5 and 10 multiplication tables and applying these to solving problems.
We will explore the concept of division through sharing and grouping, encouraging children to draw visual representations to solve a range of problems. We will develop links between multiplication and division through arrays, with children identifying how they can represent both due to their inverse nature. Children will be encouraged to find links between the 2, 5 and 10 multiplication tables and the related division facts.
Below are some games to explore these concepts further at home:
To begin the term, we will be exploring money and identifying the value of different coins. We will be applying this knowledge to solve a range of problems, including finding all the different ways to find a money amount.
Addition and Subtraction
This term we will be building on our knowledge of addition and subtraction to add and subtract two-digit numbers. We will be using our base 10 manipulatives and drawings to support our calculations, moving on to using number lines and mental methods. We can't wait to share our learning with you, so keep an eye out for photos of our working out!
Here are some links to addition and subtraction games for you to practise at home.
To help us understand place value, we use base 10.
Play these games to help you develop your understanding of place value;
We have been using base 10 resources and drawings to help us solve a range of addition and subtraction problems.
In Year 2 we need to be able to count:
forwards and backwards in 2s from 0
forwards and backwards in 3s from 0
forwards and backwards in 5s from 0.
These games will help you practice these skills.
Here are some pictures of us using Base 10 and coins to support our understanding of place value.
