In year 1, pupils should have learnt to add and subtract fluently within 10

(1NF–1). However, pupils may not still be fluent by the beginning of year 2, so this fluency should now be secured and maintained. Pupils should practise additive calculation within 10 until they have automatic recall of the additive facts. Fluency in these facts is required for pupils to succeed with addition and subtraction across 10 (2AS–1) and for additive calculation with larger numbers (2AS–3 and 2AS–4). The 66 addition facts within 10 are shown on the grid below. The number of addition facts to be learnt is reduced when commutativity is applied and pupils recognise that 3 + 2, for example, is the same as 2 + 3. Pupils must also have automatic recall of the corresponding subtraction facts, for example 5 – 3 and 5 – 2.
