Addition and subtraction

In Year 2 we look at adding and subtracting 2 digit numbers and 1 digit numbers and 2 digit and 2 digit numbers up to 100. 

 

Some possible addition questions that they could answer would be: 

 

24 + 5 =

 

29 + 5 =

 

60 + 5 =

 

60 + 20 =

 

53 + 24 =

 

47 + 16 =

 

The method we encourage the children to use for addition is column addition. 

 

 

Some possible subtraction questions that they could answer would be:

 

56 - 5 = 

 

40 - 10 =

 

42 - 5 =

 

63 - 11 =

 

57 - 19 =

 

The method we encourage the children to use for subtraction in Year 2 is number line subtraction, starting with the biggest number, then taking away the ones then the tens.
