Maths – Monday

You will need the speed challenge sheet, a pencil and a 1-minute timer.

Children in Year 2 are expected to have mental recall of number bonds to and within 20.  It is important that they know these facts off by heart as this will help them to carry out more complex mental calculations quickly.  Speed challenges are a fun way of getting them to think quickly and improve their accuracy by trying to improve their score.  On the sheet you have 5 different speed challenges, 10 calculations in each.  Complete one set a day at the start of each maths session.  Challenge your child to improve their score each day.

You will need the + and – calculation sheet from the website and a pencil today.  Don’t worry if you can’t print the sheet, you can copy one calculation at a time and answer it just as you would from the white board at school.

Answer as many of these calculations as you can.  Remember to think carefully about the different strategies that we have been using in school.  Counting on/back from the largest number, counting in steps of 10, using partition and recombine.  Please refer to the maths calculation strategy handout that was shared with all parents/carers at the start of the year. For the adding and subtracting of two 2-digit numbers you can also make use of the supporting videos located in the remote learning tab for year two under maths support.
