We will be using the Maths No Problem scheme of work to teach maths this year.
This small step approach allows children to really understand and explore the maths to master and understand it at a greater depth. Children will be taught to, and encouraged to, represent numbers and problems in a variety of ways; using resources, pictures and numbers themselves. There will be an opportunity during every lesson for the children to complete an extra challenge which will be taken from the greater depth section of the year 2 maths curriculum - linked to the topic learning in maths at that time.
During autumn 1 we will be focusing on ensuring the children have a firm understanding of number. We will be looking at place value, ordering, comparing and patterns. This leads into our section unit which focuses on addition and subtraction which allows children to apply their understand of number to solve number based problems.
