This Year 2 Addition and Subtraction Booklet – Greater Depth works brilliantly as a year 2 maths assessment at the end of your addition and subtraction maths unit of work, or use for home learning, or as an early finisher activity. You can also cut out individual sections to stick in children’s book to demonstrate maths fluency as part of maths mastery.
Aligned to the maths national curriculum, this addition and subtraction booklet is suitable for year 2 children working at greater depth – or for year 3 children who need extra consolidation. If you are using this as a maths assessment, look for gaps in children’s knowledge to inform your planning and teaching going forwards. Also works really well as KS1 maths SATs revision worksheets. We have removed the words “year 2” from the front cover so that you can use this maths activity with older pupils.
Covers the following maths national curriculum objectives:-
Pupils should be taught to:
- solve problems with addition and subtraction:
- using concrete objects and pictorial representations, including those involving numbers, quantities and measures
- applying their increasing knowledge of mental and written methods
- recall and use addition and subtraction facts to 20 fluently, and derive and use related facts up to 100
- add and subtract numbers using concrete objects, pictorial representations, and mentally, including:a two-digit number and ones
a two-digit number and tens
two two-digit numbers
adding three one-digit numbers
- show that addition of two numbers can be done in any order (commutative) and subtraction of one number from another cannot
- recognise and use the inverse relationship between addition and subtraction and use this to check calculations and solve missing number problems.
The following activities also cover the YEAR 2 TAF Greater Depth Objectives that involve addition and subtraction
- Use reasoning about numbers and relationships to solve more complex problems and explain their thinking (e.g. 29 + 17 = 15 + 4 + ̈ ; ‘together Jack and Sam have £14. Jack has £2 more than Sam. How much money does Sam have?’ etc)
- Solve unfamiliar word problems that involve more than one step (e.g. ‘which has the most biscuits, 4 packets of biscuits with 5 in each packet or 3 packets of biscuits with 10 in each packet?’)
