Maths activities

As we have already covered all of the Year 2 objectives for maths, the activities have been chosen to practise skills and deepen understanding.

Properties of 2D shapes, Properties of 3D shapes and Place Value Problem Solving & Reasoning – We have included some 'Knowledge Organisers' for these activities.  This is an overview and reminder of key concepts for children to refer to while doing this work.  If you are printing these off, please do not throw them away after completing the tasks as they will be useful for future lessons.

Please begin each activity with a title so we know which one you are doing, and write your answers in the green book.   Where applicable we would like all children to attempt the ‘Mastery’ tasks, and those that would like to challenge themselves can then answer the ‘Mastery with Greater Depth’.

Answers for these tasks are also included below. 

Times Tables and My Maths activities are detailed in the overview.

The children are used to working in maths books with squared paper – if they would like to draw some vertical lines on their pages to help with presentation then please feel free to do so.

Other curriculum areas

Please use your judgement as to what to put in the book as it may not always be necessary / appropriate. Remember you can email photos to us, which would be lovely to share with the children and look back on when we are back at school and celebrating all their hard work!
