Year 2 Autumn Term Block 1: Number and Place Value
Children will be expected to build on their knowledge of number to count, read and write up to 100. Place value charts and bar models are an excellent way to help with this, especially with partitioning numbers.
Number lines are also really useful to help place numbers.
Comparing numbers is an important aspect of this block, along with using language such as bigger than/smaller than and the > and < signs.
Once counting in ones has been firmly established children will be asked to count in fives and tens.
