Year 1 and Year 2
Across Years 1 and 2, the children will be taught a range of strategies to ensure they are fluent in their recall of addition and subtraction facts. By our children becoming fluent in the following facts this will allow the children to tackle more complex maths more effectively.
Year 1 we teach strategies for facts within 10 (steps 1 – 7) and in Year 2 we teach the bridging ten facts (steps 8 – 11).
Once children have been taught the strategies, they need to move on to practising their recall of these facts. For many facts, the aim is memorisation, while for others is to recall with speed and fluency in the applied strategy.
