Mathematics Year 2

Mathematics in year 2 is based around real life learning activities and uses other subjects such as cooking, science and Design Technology. 

The Lakenham Primary approach to Maths is based around the key skills to be taught, using a variety of resources to support in this learning process including NCETM, Numicom and White Rose Maths. We understand that there is no silver bullet in programs, but use the best of each to support the learning of the children.

Census 2021

After learning about the 2021 Census, Year 2 were inspire to conduct their own. We surveyed each other about many different things including lunch choices and what we think we need in our KS1 Garden.

We gathered this information in tally charts.

We displayed this data in a variety of different ways including bar charts and pictograms.

Lakenham Way Enquiry

At Lakenham Primary School, we strive to place Mathematics in real life practical contexts from our Time, Data and Snack Teams to giving problems to solve within our Enquiries.

As part of our Lakenham Way Enquiry, the children had to solve how many carriages would be filled with animals if the carriages only had a ten seats. This helped to deepen their understanding of how numbers can be partitioned into tens and ones as well building on team work and imagination.
