Check Calculations Lesson

This Year 2 Check Calculations lesson covers the prior learning of using related facts, before moving onto the main skill of checking calculations using different methods

The lesson starts with a prior learning worksheet to check pupils’ understanding. If they need more practice, you can choose other resources for that step.
