National Curriculum

Year 2/3 Maths Plans

These plans cover the statutory objectives of the National Curriculum for England for Year 2 and Year 3.

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. 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, Problem-solving Investigations or NNS-examples select  Year 2 or Year 3 on the red bar above.

Mental addition and subtraction

Year 2:  Partition numbers to 10, then 20 into pairs, record related addition sentences and corresponding subtraction facts.;Recognise the use of a symbol such as ■ to represent an unknown; Add/subtract a single digit to/from a 2-digit number not crossing 10s, using number facts and pattern. Add three small numbers. Year 3:  Objectives: Know number bonds to 20 and use them in addition and subtraction; Use = to represent equality; Add and subtract 1-digit numbers to/from 2-digit numbers.

Money, addition and subtraction

Year 2: Recognise all coins. Find totals up to 20p and change from 20p. Find all possibilities by making an ordered list. Use pairs to ten to find the complement to the next multiple of ten. Year 3: Understand and use place value with money using £ and p notation. Subtract pairs of 2-digit numbers by counting up. Find change from £1. Includes bar model examples.

Time, position and direction

Year 2: Read the time to the quarter of an hour on digital and analogue clocks. Begin to identify time intervals. Identify left and right, recognise right angles, whole, half and quarter turns, both clockwise and anticlockwise. Year 3: Tell the time to five minutes using analogue, digital and Roman numeral clocks. Understand am and pm times. Understand angles as degrees of turn, right angles as quarter turns, clockwise and anticlockwise. Recognise that two right angles make a half-turn, three make three quarters of a turn and four a complete turn.
