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 using place value and number facts to solve problems.
Children in Year 2 begin to learn about what each digit in a number represents, or its place value. For example, in the number 34, there are 3 tens and 4 units. They can use this knowledge of place values to solve problems using 100 squares, answer more than/less than questions, solve money problems and also use it to answer number bond questions.














55 is one more than 54, and 10 more than 45

82 is one less than 83, and ten less than 92


15 is one less than 16 and ten more than 5

‘10 more’ means adding 10 to the number


‘4 more’ means adding 4 to 65

’20 less’ means counting back 20 from 80, or subtracting 20


10p more means adding one 10 in the tens column

£1 is 100p. 50p less than this is 50p


Knowing numbers bonds or pairs to 20 helps here

13 + 7 = 20, so 20 – 7 must be 13!
