Maths

A big focus within Year 1/2 this year is number bond knowledge. By the end of year 1 the children should know the number pairs that equal 10 by heart and by the end of year 2 the children should know the number pairs that equal 20 by heart.

Below are links to two documents showing what children should know and be able to do in maths by the end of year 1 and 2:
