We follow a maths mastery approach at St. George's and as such, we are spending time securing knowledge and understanding of the mathematical concepts we have previously mastered before moving onto new learning. When we are secure in the Year 2 concepts, we will move on to incorporating more complex ideas into our lessons, always drawing on previous learning in order to make connections. The aim is to become fluent in number facts, be able to represent what we know in many different ways and make links between areas of knowledge - thus becoming Maths Masters!
At St. George's, we believe everyone can master maths.
With hard work and encouragement, we can all achieve!

This term's learning (Autumn 2 2023):

This term, we will contine to focus on SpineS 1.18 and 1.19 and Shape 3G1.

These are our teaching points for these units of learning. Please find Knowledge Organisers to download at the bottom of each page.

Spine 1.18

Composition and Calculation: 3-Digit Numbers

Spine 1.19

Securing Mental Strategies: calculation up to 999

Shape 3G1

  • Teaching point 1: Three-digit numbers can be composed additively from hundreds, tens and ones; this structure can be used to support additive calculation.
  • Teaching point 2: Each number on the 0 to 1,000 number line has a unique position.
  • Teaching point 3: The smallest three-digit number is 100, and the largest three-digit number is 999; the relative size of two three-digit numbers can be determined by examining the hundreds digits, then the tens digits, and then the ones digits, as necessary.
  • Teaching point 4: Three-digit multiples of ten can be expressed multiplicatively and additively, in terms of tens or hundreds.
  • Teaching point 5: Known facts and strategies for addition and subtraction within and across ten, and within and across 100, can be used to support additive calculation within 1,000.
  • Teaching point 6: Familiar counting sequences can be extended up to 1,000.






  • Teaching point 1: Known partitioning strategies for adding two-digit numbers within 100 can be extended to the mental addition of two-digit numbers that bridge 100, and addition of three-digit numbers.
  • Teaching point 2: Transforming addition calculations into equivalent calculations can support efficient mental strategies.
  • Teaching point 3: Subtraction calculations can be solved using a ‘finding the difference’ strategy; this can be thought of as ‘adding on’ to find a missing part.
  • Teaching point 4: The order of addition and subtraction steps in a multi-step calculation can be chosen or manipulated such as to simplify the arithmetic.
















  • draw 2-D shapes and make 3-D shapes using modelling materials; recognise 3-D shapes in different orientations and describe them
  • recognise angles as a property of shape or a description of a turn
  • identify right angles, recognise that two right angles make a half-turn, three make three quarters of a turn and four a complete turn; identify whether angles are greater than or less than a right angle
  • identify horizontal and vertical lines and pairs of perpendicular and parallel lines.













I will set Mathletics homework each week. It will be set on FRIDAY and will be due the next TUESDAY. It will usually always complement the work we are doing in class. Children, please feel free to do extra if you wish to challenge yourselves!
Parents, for help using Mathletics please follow the link below:
Children, if you don't understand something, click the 'i' in the top-tight corner. This will give you an explanation if you follow the arrows on the right.

Times Table Rockstars

The children will have log ins for Times Tables Rockstars. Please make sure you support your child in learning their times tables each week.
Make sure you challenge each other!
