We are learning to multiply by using arrays, repeated addition and mental calculation facts. By the end of Year 2 children are expected to know by heart their 2, 5 and 10 times tables, as well as being able to count in 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10s.
We are learning to divide by grouping and sharing. Children are encouraged to use their multiplication knowledge to help them to solve divisions. Children need to know what is half of any even number to 20.
In Year 2 children learn to record their amounts of money as pounds (£) and pence (p) using their place value knowledge. They need to find different ways to make a total using different coins and solve simple problems, including those involving giving change.
