Maths: Hamilton's short maths blocks have all the benefits of our weekly plans. They also provide support and resources that were simply not possible when we produced the weekly plans. Find out about the advantages of short blocks.
For many parents, homework is the only picture they get of what their child does at school. For this reason, Hamilton have put a great deal of effort into writing suitable, fun and home-friendly activities for children and parents to share together. Children will benefit and so will parents and teachers!
The activities rehearse core literacy skills that you may wish children to practise or keep on the boil. Read our maths homework blog for more advice about using them.
