Age: 6 - 7 Years - End of Year 2 Review
The Deer Summer School includes Arithmetic that a child aged 6–7 would expect to have encountered by the end of School Year 2 . The material is grouped according to the new National Curriculum Attainment Targets for Year 2.

Click here for more detail on how we've updated our Summer Schools for the new National Curriculum.

All children learn and develop at different rates so we would advise you to look at the detail within each school to make sure you choose the package which will best support your child’s learning.

A range of Maths Skills is taught within each Maths Camp using Video Lessons and Learning Games, with plenty of opportunities for practising.

Within the Deer Summer School , your child will explore 3 Maths Camps:

Camp 1: Understanding Numbers
Ordering numbers up to 100
More detail...
Learn about putting numbers up to 100 in order of size, first by splitting numbers into tens and units visually using arrow cards. Practise ordering numbers, initially with 2 numbers, deciding which is bigger. Then put 3 numbers in order. Hide

Putting numbers on a number line
More detail...
Learn about using number lines with numbers up to 100, using the tens to find the rough position of the number, then finding the exact position of the number. Do this with fully labelled number lines, then with number lines that only have the tens numbers labelled. Practise moving the pointer to a given number and also identifying the number being pointed to. Hide

Rounding to the nearest 10
More detail...
Learn to round to the nearest 10 in steps, starting by identifying the tens numbers on either side of a given number on a number line and reinforcing these skills by practising finding numbers up to 100. Then learn about rounding up or down, with simple examples, such as 36 rounds up to 40 and 72 rounds down to 70. Learn what happens when a number is exactly halfway between two tens numbers, for example, 55 is halfway between 50 and 60. Practise rounding any number up to 99 to the nearest 10. Hide

Adding multiples of 10 to 2 digit numbers
More detail...
Use the skill of adding 10 to 2 digit numbers to learn to add multiples of 10. Learn to count on in 10s, with a 100 square as support and also to add on multiples of 10 using column addition. Practise at first with totals that are less than 100, then develop addition skills to take the answer past 100. Hide

Adding numbers 1, 2 or 3 to numbers up to 30
More detail...
Learn to add 1, 2 or 3, adding 1 to numbers up to 100, using a 100 square as well as counting objects. Work on adding 2 and 3 to numbers up to 30 separately, using number tracks and counting on in 2s and 3s, before carrying out practice sessions that contain a mixture of adding 1, 2 or 3. Hide

Subtracting numbers 1, 2 or 3 from numbers up to 30
More detail...
Learn to subtract 1, 2 or 3 from numbers up to 30, extending subtracting 1 from numbers up to 100. Work on subtracting 2 and 3 individually, using moles as well as number tracks, then practise a mixture of subtracting 1, 2 or 3. Hide

Adding and subtracting 2 with numbers up to 100
More detail...
Look at adding and subtracting 2 with the support of a 100 square and various forms of practice, to encourage rapid mental skill. Hide

Camp 2: Knowing Number Facts
Subtracting numbers 1 to 10 from numbers up to 30
More detail...
Learn to subtract numbers 4 to 9 from numbers up to 30 individually, using number tracks and encouraging the use of number bonds in subtraction. For example, 25 – 8, could be carried out in 2 stages by using 5 + 3 = 8: 25 – 5 = 20, then 20 – 3 = 17. Practise with a variety of activities to improve speed of subtraction of each digit, then practise on mixed subtractions of all numbers from 1 to 9 from numbers up to 30. Hide

1 times table
More detail...
Learn the 1 times table, by looking at it with pictures and in order, practising to help to remember that multiplying by 1 just gives the same number as you started with. Hide

2 times table
More detail...
Learn the 2 times table, by looking at it with pictures, in order and using a music video to help to remember the times table facts. Practise this table. Hide

5 times table
More detail...
Learn the 5 times table, by looking at it with pictures, in order and using a music video to help to remember the times table facts. Practise this table. Hide

10 times table
More detail...
Learn the 10 times table, by looking at it with pictures, in order and using a music video to help to remember the times table facts. Practise this table. Hide

Mixed 5 and 10 times tables
More detail...
Review the 5 and 10 times tables, by looking at patterns between the two tables, identifying multiples of 5 and 10. Practise mixed sessions of 5 and 10 times tables. Hide

Adding numbers 4 to 9 to numbers up to 99
More detail...
Look at mental strategies to help with adding, such as using basic number bonds, putting the bigger number first, adding to the nearest 10. Practise adding numbers 1 to 9, encouraging rapid use of mental skills. Hide

Subtracting numbers 1 to 10 from numbers up to 100
More detail...
Look at mental strategies to help with subtracting, such as using basic number bonds. Work on filling the gap in different places in subtractions. Practise subtracting numbers 1 to 10, to improve speed of answering. Hide

Camp 3: Calculations
Introducing multiplication
More detail...
Learn about the basics of multiplication, what the x sign means and see multiplication in pictures, demonstrating Commutative Law: that multiplications can be reversed and still be the same value, such as 2 x 3 = 3 x 2. Understand that multiplication is a better alternative to repeated addition and that anything multiplied by 0 will still be 0. Practise using Commutative Law and multiplying by 0. Hide

Introducing division
More detail...
Learn about the basics of division, including the ÷ sign. See division demonstrated as sharing equally in pictures and start to learn about the relationship between division facts and their related times table facts. For example, if you know 3 x 5 = 15, you know 3 other facts: 5 x 3 = 15 and 15 ÷ 5 = 3 and 15 ÷ 3 = 5. Practise dividing by sharing objects equally and by finding a corresponding division fact to a times table fact. Hide

Dividing by 2
More detail...
Look at dividing by 2 pictorially, emphasising the relationship between division facts and times table facts. For example: 5 x 2 = 10, 2 x 5 = 10, 10 ÷ 5 = 2, 10 ÷ 2 = 5. Practise dividing by 2. Hide

Dividing by 5
More detail...
Look at dividing by 5 pictorially, emphasising the relationship between division facts and times table facts. For example: 4 x 5 = 20, 5 x 4 = 20, 20 ÷ 5 = 4, 20 ÷ 4 = 5. Practise dividing by 5. Hide

Dividing by 10
More detail...
Look at dividing by 10 pictorially, emphasising the relationship between division facts and times table facts. For example: 10 x 3 = 30, 3 x 10 = 30, 30 ÷ 3 = 10, 30 ÷ 10 = 3. Look at dividing by 10 in general, using place value principles. Practise dividing by 10. Hide

Dividing by 2, 5 and 10
More detail...
Look at relationships between the multiples of 2, 5 and 10 and practise recognition of these. Practise dividing by a mixture of 2, 5 and 10. Hide

Adding in columns
More detail...
Learn to use columns for addition with 2 digit numbers + single digits. Start with placing the digits correctly, then work with progressively bigger numbers, learning to use carry digits, first tens, then hundreds. Additions will range in difficulty from, for example, 21 + 4 up to 98 + 7. Hide

Column subtraction of 2 digit minus 2 digit numbers
More detail...
Learn to add two 2 digit numbers in columns. Start by placing the digits correctly and adding numbers where no carrying is required, then work with bigger numbers, learning to carry tens then hundreds. Additions will range in difficulty from, for example, 21 + 23 up to 99 + 96. Hide

Camp 4: Fractions
Fractions in pictures
More detail...
Learn what fractions are, using pictures, limited to 1/2s, 1/4s and 1/8s. Learn about how fractions are written, including which is the numerator and the denominator, relating this to pictures of fractions. Look at fractions pictured on a variety of shapes as well as discrete objects. Hide

1/4s and 1/2s in pictures
