Hamilton has always been attentive to the unique challenges of teaching mixed age classes, and we are pleased to announce the availability of mixed age flexible and short maths blocks on our website.
Flexible and short blocks for mixed age teaching are now fully available for Autumn and Spring.
Summer will be appearing from February half-term.
Our long flexible blocks allow you to choose how to structure your term's teaching, while our short maths blocks provide all the inbuilt advantages of the weekly plans and more. Find out more about the benefits of short maths blocks.

We plan to add mixed age maths blocks for years R/1, 2/3 and 4/5 in due course.
