• use place value and number facts to solve problems;
• compare and order numbers from 0 up to 1,000 and use <, > and = signs;
• count in steps of 2, 3, 5 and 10; and
• count on and back in 10s and 100s from any 2 or 3 digit number.

Calculations

• solve simple, one-step problems with addition and subtraction using concrete objects, pictorial representations and an increasing knowledge of mental and written methods;
• recall and use addition and subtraction facts to 20 fluently and derive and use related facts up to 100;
• add and subtract a two-digit number to 100 and use to solve problems;
• find the difference between 2 numbers and use this to solve problems;
• begin to mentally add and subtract two two-digit numbers;
• recognise and use the inverse relationship between addition and subtraction;
• recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 2, 5 and 10 multiplication tables;
• understand the operation of multiplication as repeated addition and arrays;
• understand the operation of division as equal grouping; and
• use the x, ÷ and = symbols in number sentences and when solving simple problems.

Fractions

• understand and find ½ , ¼ and 1/3 of a shape or quantity and equivalent fractions.

Measurement

• choose and use appropriate standard measures to measure and compare length, mass, capacity and time;
• read relevant scales to the nearest numbered unit;
• tell and write the time to 5 minutes and quarter past/to the hour;
• recognise and use symbols for £ and p;
• total coins up to £1 in practical situations; and
• recognise equivalent amounts of money.

Geometry

• recognise, name and sort regular and irregular 2D and 3D shapes and identify their properties, including right angles and symmetry; and
• describe position, direction and movement including rotation, quarter and half-turns and clockwise and anti-clockwise turns.

Statistics

• construct and interpret pictograms, tables and simple graphs.
