National Curriculum

Year 1/2 Maths Plans

These plans cover the statutory objectives of the National Curriculum for England for Year 1 and Year 2.

The Coverage Chart shows you where. The Medium Term Plan lists each week's teaching focus, activities, starter and National Curriculum outcomes cross-referenced to the Hamilton Assessment Plan. These are organised as much as possible congruently so that you are addressing the same objectives with both year groups. There are problem-solving investigations linked to each week’s teaching available in the left hand navigation bar. The Resource List provides a comprehensive list of physical resources suggested by the Hamilton plans. The Outcomes Sheets allow you to record quick day-to-day judgements about children's mastery of objectives in the back of their maths books. Answers to exercises appear at the end of each week's resources document.

For Homework, Starters or NNS-examples select Year 1 or Year 2 on the red bar above.

Number, addition and subtraction

Year 1: Count to 100. Find one more or one less than any number to 100. Count in 10s from 10 then from any number. Find 10 more and 10 less than a given number. Estimate a quantity. Year 2: Compare numbers using the symbols < and >. Identify properties of numbers and use this to sort them. Add near multiples of 10 by adding 10s and adjusting. Identify and test patterns.

Addition and subtraction

Year 1: Know number bonds to 8, 9 and 10. Find and record doubles up to double 6. Add three small numbers, spotting pairs to ten and doubles. Year 2: Use number facts or place value to add and subtract. Sort calculations as to whether number facts or place value can be used to help identify the useful number fact. Add/subtract a single-digit to/from a 2-digit number by bridging multiples of ten using knowledge of pairs to ten and place value. Includes bar model examples.

Counting, addition, subtraction and money

Year 1: Recognise coins; Find totals using more than two coins up to 10p; Work out what coins can be used to pay an amount up to 10p; Find all possibilities by making an ordered list; Count on in tens from single-digit numbers and back; Relate counting on in tens to find 10 more/less than any two-digit number Year 2: Add/subtract two-digit numbers by partioning; Add/subtract using a 1-100 number square and landmarked lines. Mental addition and subtraction. Includes bar model examples.

Weight, time, position and direction

Year 1: Estimate, measure and compare objects, choosing and using suitable uniform non-standard or standard units. Use vocabulary related to time. Read the time to the hour (o’clock) and half past the hour. Year 2: Estimate, measure and compare weights, choosing and using suitable standard units and suitable measuring instruments. Identify left and right. Recognise whole, half and quarter turns, both clockwise and anti-clockwise. Recognise right angles.

Multiplication and division

Mental multiplication and division. Year 1: Count in 10s, 2s; Recognise number sequences; Know odd and even numbers; Double and halve numbers to 20; Sorting diagrams. Year 2: Count in 2s, 5s, 10s and recognise multiples; Investigate a statement; Use grouping in 2s, 5s, 10s to count, see this as a model of division; Multiplication as repeated addition. Use X sentences to describe an array, link to division. Know that division can have some left over. Word problems.

Place value and fractions

Year 1: 2-digit - Know what each digit means, partition, compare, order numbers on a track, then a beaded line; say a number between neighbouring multiples of ten; investigate and create different 2-digit numbers. Year 2: 2-digit - compare, describe properties, locate numbers on a number line, find numbers in between, round to the nearest ten. Find fractions of amounts 1/2s, 1/4s and 1/3s by sharing and using known number facts.

+ Details
Money, addition and subtraction

Year 1: Find way to pay amounts up to 20p. Find totals of single-digit prices using known facts or counting on. Add 10p and 20p to two-digit amounts of money. Find change from 10p and the difference between prices (between 10p and 20p). Year 2: Recognise coins and find totals using a combination of coins. Add two 2-digit money amounts together. Subtract 2-digit numbers using grid and Spider. Find the difference in the context of change.

Measures and data

Year 1: Capacity: Understand the term, compare by direct comparison and using uniform non-standard units, estimate and compare. Present data in pictograms and block graphs to answer questions. Year 2: Capacity: Estimate, measure and compare, choosing and using suitable non-standard and standard units and suitable measuring instruments. Answer a question by collecting and recording data, represent it as block graphs and pictograms. Includes bar model examples.

Y1: Addition and subtraction. Y2: Multiplication and division

Year 1: Find pairs to 6 - 10, relate addition and subtraction facts; find doubles and near doubles; mental addition or subtraction of 10 then near multiples of 10 to 2-digit numbers. Year 2: Mental multiplication and division. Read an array; know that multiplication can be done in any order; use beaded lines and grouping, then hops to work out division problems; create and sort division and multiplication word problems; know that division is the inverse of multiplication. Includes bar model examples.

+ Details
Addition and subtraction

Year 1: Know number bonds to 10 and use them to bridge 10 with visual support; add 1-digit amounts of pence, bridging 10p; sort calculations according to whether they will bridge 10. Year 2: Sort calculations - known facts or need to be worked out; use facts to add four or five small numbers, spotting pairs to ten/doubles; addition/subtraction of two 2-digit numbers, begin to sort number problems. Mental addition and subtraction by partitioning. Includes bar model examples.

Measures, addition and subtraction

Year 1: Measure objects using non-standard units of measurements (cubes); estimate and compare lengths. Find a difference in height/length. Find numbers with a given difference. Year 2: Add 2-digit numbers using grid and Spider without crossing 10s, then crossing 10s. Begin to understand difference as one model of subtraction. Subtract two-digit numbers lying either side of a multiple of 10 by counting up (Frog), using pairs to ten and place value, e.g. 22 – 17, 32 – 27.
