Year 2 Money - Addition and Subtraction

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 solving simple problems in a practical context involving addition and subtraction of money of the same unit, including giving change.

Children in Year 2 should be familiar with adding and subtracting small amounts of money of the same unit. They should be able to use this skill to solve money problems which may involve finding a total or working out change.

This quiz will present your child with some practical problems on money of the same unit to help familiarise them with the concept.
