Reception Maths Plans
Hamilton provide Reception weekly maths plans (below). Maths blocks based on the new 2019 Early Learning Goals will be coming from September for 2019-20. We will be phasing out the plans, as we believe our blocks will offer you all of the same advantages and more. Find out more about the timetable for Hamilton's Early Years maths.
