Two-digit numbers

  • Year group: Year 2
  • Term: Autumn
  • Topic: Number and place value
  • Duration: 3 weeks
  • Keystage: KS1
  • Age Range: 6 to 7 yrs
  • Unit can be taught out of sequence: N
  • Week Range: 1 - 3

In this chapter, pupils recognise the place value of each digit in a two-digit number (ie, in tens and ones) and begin to understand zero as a place holder.

This occurs through frequent opportunities to identify, represent and estimate numbers to 100 using different representations, including the number line.

Pupils partition numbers in different ways (eg, 23 = 20 + 3 and 23 = 10 + 13). They show this using part-whole diagrams or using Dienes, counters, cubes or place value grids to support their understanding.

Much of the mathematical content of this chapter involves deepening pupils’ understanding of concepts encountered previously. This might be through the introduction of a greater variety of representations (either pupils moving interchangeably between or selecting their own representations), practising for greater fluency and independence with language and asking and answering increasingly sophisticated mathematical questions.

This chapter also sees the introduction of inequality notation, as pupils compare and order numbers from 0 up to 100 using <, > and = signs.

Mathematics Mastery

Two-digit numbers

Mathematical discussion is a key element of the Mathematics Mastery programme.

Talk Tasks are a brilliant way of enabling pupils to develop their mathematical language, thinking, understanding and confidence.
This activity explores the concept of two-digit numbers.

• Talk tasks are best completed in mixed attainment pairs, with pupils taking turns to listen and construct arguments
• Emphasis is on discussion rather than the solution, encouraging pupils to use key language and talk in full sentences
• Ask pupils to prove their answers in a variety of ways, using the CPA approach to support mathematical understanding and number sense

Two-digit numbers

Deepening pupils’ understanding of key mathematical ideas is a core element of the Mathematics Mastery programme.

Our Key Constructs highlight the essential mathematical concepts all pupils are expected to grasp within each year group, with accompanying guidance for assessing pupil progress.

Our Key Constructs are closely aligned to the National Curriculum’s objectives. We know these can be tricky to evidence, so we’ve included an example task for each concept, as well as ideas to support slower-graspers and depth tasks to challenge higher-attaining pupils.

• Pupils should work through the tasks independently
• Teachers should incorporate the CPA approach to support pupils’ learning
• Opportunities for depth and scaffolding are built into each task
