  Number lines are a useful tool when doing additions or subtractions.

# Year 2 Numbers - Number Lines

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 counting on from any given number.

Children in Year 2 should be quite familiar with the number line. They may use it to count on or back, or to calculate additions or subtractions. Understanding the value of numbers means being able to recognise where numbers should come in relation to each other, as well as being able to recognise any missing numbers in a set.

This quiz will help children to use number lines when counting on from any given number.
