Year 2 Calculation - Addition Language

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Maths and Numeracy for children aged 6 and 7 in year 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with understanding the language of addition.

In Year 2, children extend their understanding of the language of addition to include the word sum. They should already know words such as add, addition, plus, more than, total and altogether. Recognising and understanding the language of addition is essential in order to be able to make decisions about which operation to use to solve calculations and problems.
