Hamilton have changed the structure of Year 2 maths planning to ensure that every part of the Y2 content is covered before the statutory assessments in late May. Thank you to the teachers who suggested this improvement. We hope all our teachers will be pleased that, now that the statutory assessment date is known, our plans enable you to teach to it.

Hamilton has added the bar model to the range of models and images used in our weekly maths plans and resources. It is a useful image to show how parts relate to a whole, for example to demonstrate pairs of numbers which add to a given number. You can find it in Autumn plans now, and it will be coming to Spring plans soon.
