Mathematics

We use White Rose and Power Maths schemes to support maths teaching in year 1 and 2. 
 
We want maths to be as hands-on and interactive as possible. Children should use manipulatives (equipment) to support their understanding and learning. 
 
For the autumn term children will be learning:
 
Place Value - both year 1 and 2.
  • Numbers to and within 20, 50 and 100.
  • Tens and Ones. 
It is useful for your child to know their number bonds to ten as these make up the basis of a lot of the maths that we complete.   
 
A helpful video to support this can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=poJmS5iWfEs 
 
  
 
Times Tables
By the end of Key Stage 1 pupils should know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables. Most will also know their 3 times tables.
We use BBC SuperMovers to help with these.
 
They are great fun, involve movement/ dancing and singing and are proven to help children to learn. You can access them here:
 
 
We will also use games from the Hit the Button website to reinforce number bonds to and within 10 and 20, doubles and various number patterns. The website can be accessed here: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button
