Hamilton Education sells hard copy teaching resources that support Hamilton plans at very low cost. Group Readers, phonics books, number lines and 'Five Minute Fillers' can help you teach literacy and numeracy skills in your classroom.
These plans cover the statutory objectives of the National Curriculum for England for Year 1 and Year 2.
The Coverage Chart shows you where. The Medium Term Plan lists each week's teaching focus, activities, starter and National Curriculum outcomes cross-referenced to the Hamilton Assessment Plan. These are organised as much as possible congruently so that you are addressing the same objectives with both year groups. There are problem-solving investigations linked to each week’s teaching available in the left hand navigation bar. The Resource List provides a comprehensive list of physical resources suggested by the Hamilton plans. The Outcomes Sheets allow you to record quick day-to-day judgements about children's mastery of objectives in the back of their maths books. Answers to exercises appear at the end of each week's resources document.
For Homework, Starters or NNS-examples select Year 1 or Year 2 on the red bar above.
Year 1: Numbers up to 20: recite, count, order on a track, say number before/after, estimate, make ‘teens’ by adding to 10, partition ‘teens’. Year 2: Numbers up to 100: Mark on a beaded line and landmarked line, order, compare, say a number between neighbouring multiples of ten, count on and back, estimate, show using bead strings and write the corresponding addition, partition, use place value to add and subtract. This plan uses mental addition using partitioning.
Mental addition and subtraction. Year 1: Understand addition as combining sets, relate counting on to addition, partition 5 into two groups. Record related addition sentences. Year 2: Partition all numbers to 10, then 20 into pairs, record related addition sentences and find corresponding subtraction; use the = sign to represent equality; recognise use of a symbol to represent an unknown; count on and back in tens from any number; relate to finding 10 more/less. Includes bar model examples.
Year 1: Know 1p - 10p coins and totals of two. Use vocabulary related to time; read the time to the hour (o’clock) and half past the hour. Year 2: Know coins and the total of two or more. Make amounts, using number facts and find all possibilities by making an ordered list. Use coins to buy objects up to 20p and find change from 10p and 20p. Read time on digital and analogue clocks to half and then quarter of an hour; identify time intervals. Mental addition by partitioning. Includes bar model examples.
Year 1: Estimate, measure and compare objects; choose and use suitable uniform non-standard or standard units; create and find symmetrical patterns. Year 2: Measure length using standard units (decimetre, centimetre ,metre); measure using a ruler in cm and m. Find change from 20p; add 10p, 11p and 20p in the context of money. Includes bar model examples.
Year 1: Understand subtraction as ‘take away’, count what’s left and record related subtraction sentences. Relate counting on 1 or 2 to addition. Understand a word problem and decide what action is needed to solve it. Year 2: Use pairs to ten to find the complement to next multiple of ten. Add and subtract 10, 20, 11 and 21.
Year 1: Count on/back starting from any number up to 20. Order and number numbers to 20, place on a track, then a beaded line, mark on numbers just before and after 5, 10, 15, and 20. Count to 100 in tens from zero. Recognise fractions of shapes ½ and ¼. Year 2: Count in 2s and 10s from any number. Recognise multiples of 10 and odd and even numbers. Begin to use multiplication. Find halves and quarters of shapes.
Year 1: Find doubles to at least double 6. Share numbers to 10 to find which are even and which are odd. Count in twos from 1 and 2 to find odd and even numbers to 20. Use vocabulary related to time; order days of the week and months. Year 2: Find doubles to at least double 30 and corresponding halves. Measure activities using seconds and minutes. Includes bar model examples.
Year 1: Visualise and name common 2 dimensional (2D) shapes, describe their features, use them to make patterns, pictures and models; answer a question by recording information in lists and tables, using practical resources. Year 2: Recognise common 2D shapes, identify from pictures in different positions and orientations; draw, sort and describe 2D shapes, referring to their properties including symmetry and right angles (‘square’ corners).
Year 1: Find one more/less than any number up to 20 and beyond, including one more than 29, 39, etc. Find two more/less than any number up to 20. Relate counting on to addition and counting back to subtraction. Partition 6 into different pairs. Year 2: Add and subtract 20, 30, 40, 50 to/from 2-digit numbers (answer less than 100). Add 11, 12, 13, 21, 22, 23, 31, 32 and 33 to 2-digit numbers (answer less than 100). Begin to subtract 11, 12, 21 and 22 from 2-digit numbers.
Year 1: Partition 7 and 10 and record the related addition sentences; begin to find the corresponding subtraction facts. Relate counting on to addition. Add 2, 3 or 4 by counting on. Add a pair of numbers by putting the larger number first. Year 2: Add/subtract a single digit to/from a 2-digit number not crossing 10s using number facts and pattern then crossing 10s. Add 2-digit numbers by counting on in 10s and 1s; Begin to add near multiples of 10 by adding 10s and adjusting. Identify and test patterns.
Year 1: Know number bonds to 10 and find matching number pairs quickly. Count from 1 to 100 and to 100 from any given number. Find one more and one less than a number up to 100. Use ordinal numbers in context. Year 2: Know pairs with a total of 20 and derive the subtraction facts. Recognise the use of a symbol such as ■ to represent an unknown. Add 2-digit numbers by counting on in 10s and 1s. Add near multiples of 10 by adding 10s and adjusting.
