New National Curriculum

Reception/Year 1 New Curriculum Maths Plans

These plans cover the 2012 Early Years curriculum and the statutory objectives of the National Curriculum for England for Year 1. The Coverage Chart below lays out the curriculum coverage for the year by week and by mathematical area. The Medium Term Plan lists each week's teaching focus and National Curriculum outcomes for each year group, organised as much as possible congruently so that you are addressing the same objectives with both year groups. These are cross-referenced to the Hamilton Assessment Plan.

Outcomes Sheets provide a mechanism for you to record quick day-to-day judgements about children's mastery of objectives in the back of their maths books. You will need the mixed-year version of the Outcomes Sheet appropriate for the actual year of each child. These can be used alongside the Hamilton Assessment Tracker or any other digital recording system.

For Homework, Starters, Problem-solving investigations or other supporting material, please select Reception or Year 1 on the red bar above.

Answers to the exercises in the weekly resources appear at the end of each week's resource document.
