FREE Hamilton YouTube Resources

karen_edwards2.jpg By Karen Edwards

Hamilton's YouTube Channel has a wide range of wonderful freely available resources for teachers. These can all be used to create a brilliant lesson or sequence of lessons. They are exciting, relevant and stimulating. Almost all are linked to planning materials on the Hamilton site - just look for the details in the video descriptions in YouTube. The videos include Animated Tales, Storytelling and Poetry Performances and Story Readings.

In addition to our YouTube channel, we have specific PowerPoint or PDF resources, also free, which can be used to support teachers' own lessons. These include Animated Tales, Maths ITPs and everyday maths images.
