Extra Maths Support - Year 2
The extra support activities below match Hamilton’s weekly maths plans. We now also provide Year 2 maths as short blocks. We will eventually be phasing out the plans, as we believe our short blocks offer you all of the same advantages and more, including the integration of the problem-solving investigations into each unit of study. Find out more about the advantages of Hamilton's short blocks.
Beady numbers (1): Locating 2-digit numbers on a bead string, saying which is more. Beady sums (2): Adding 10s and 1s to make 2-digit numbers.
Ten totally rocks (1): Finding pairs with a total of 10. Spider counting (2): Finding pairs with a total of 10.
Count your pennies (1): Knowing the value of coins from 1p to 20p. Time triples (2): Telling the time to the hour on analogue and digital clocks.
Shape sums (1): Revising pairs to 10; Using pairs to 10 to find pairs to 20. Sticker shop (2): Finding change from 10p.
Teddy long legs (1): Comparing lenghts using uniform non-standard measures; Using comparative vocabulary (taller, longer, shorter). Clever counting (2): Counting in 10s from 10.
Blues and twos (1): Counting in 2s from 1 and from 2. Birthday cards (2): Finding halves of shapes by folding.
Seeing double (1): Finding and beginning to know by heart doubles from double 1 to double 10. Be fair (2): Halving even numbers to 20.
Give me 5...or 6 or 7 (1): Finding pairs with a total of 5, 6 and 7. Sum patterns (2): Using pattern and number bonds to work out related additions, e.g. 3 + 2 = 5, so 13 + 2 = 15, 23 + 2 = 25, 33 + 2 = 35...
What's the gap? (1): Saying the next 10s number; Finding how many to the next 10s number, e.g. 36 + ? = 40. Sums say the answers! (2): Using place value to add, e.g. 20 + 4 = 24.
Odd one out (1): Identifying regular and irregular 2D shapes in different orientations. More spider counting (2): Counting back in 10s.
Spider's workout (1): Adding and subtracting 10 using a 1-100 grid. Easy come, easy go (2): Adding and subtracting 10 using coins.
Down the stairs (1): Adding 11 to 2-digit numbers. Up the stairs (2): Subtracting 11 from 2-digit numbers.
