We will be continuing to try our new rocket maths this year in order to help us to learn our number bonds and times tables. By the end of year 2 children are expected to quickly recall their number bonds to 10 and 20 and their 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables. These skills are vital in many maths activities and quick recall of these facts can really improve your child's maths in general.
Your child will need to complete each sheet in 3 minutes to show that they can quickly remember each fact. When we feel they are ready and are secure with the facts on their sheet they will move on to the next set. Each time they complete a section (eg. moon, comet, sun) they will receive a sticker to put on their rocket maths chart.
Please encourage your children to practise these facts at home as regularly as possible.There are some games to support these skills in the 'Maths Targets' and 'Maths at Home' sections of our class page.
Let's zoom into space and get started!
