At Stanford Infant School, we view home learning as being any supported or independent activity undertaken outside of curriculum time which reinforces, extends or enriches current learning. It provides opportunities for parents/carers to be involved in their child’s learning and enables children to practise and consolidate skills. We welcome your support with any home learning activities; please ask your child’s teacher if you require any further information or support.

The following sheet details the number facts that children should be fluent in by the time they leave Year 2. The facts are split into Year 1 and Year 2 depending on the mental strategy the children need to use in order to solve the calculations. Fluency is a key part of the mathematics curriculum and children are encouraged to practice and become confident in using mental strategies.

In Years 1 and 2 the children will be taught these addition facts throughout the year. Although many children will be able to solve these using counting strategies they are only considered fluent if they can quickly recall the answers by solving them mentally.
