During this term will be focusing on:
Multiplication and Division:
- Year 1: solve one-step problems involving multiplication and division, by calculating the answer using concrete objects, pictorial representations and arrays with the support of the teacher.
- Year 2: recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 2, 5 and 10 multiplication tables, including recognising odd and even numbers, calculate mathematical statements for multiplication and division within the multiplication tables and write them using the multiplication (×), division (÷) and equals (=) signs show that multiplication of two numbers can be done in any order (commutative) and division of one number by another cannot solve problems involving multiplication and division, using materials, arrays, repeated addition, mental methods, and multiplication and division facts, including problems in contexts.
Fractions (including decimals and percentages):
- Year 1: recognise, find and name a half as one of two equal parts of an object, shape or quantity, recognise, find and name a quarter as one of four equal parts of an object, shape or quantity.
- Year 2: recognise, find, name and write fractions ⅓, ¼, 2⁄4 and ¾ of a length, shape, set of objects or quantity write simple fractions e.g. ½ of 6 = 3 and recognise the equivalence of two quarters and one half.
