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 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: Order two-digit numbers. Find a number between neighbouring pairs of multiples of 10. Find 10 more and 10 less. Find halves and quarters of shapes and amounts. Year 2: Place 2-digit numbers on a number line and round 2-digit numbers to nearest 10. Count in fractions. Find ½, ¼, ¾ and 1/3 of amounts using sharing and number facts.
Year 1: Mental addition and subtraction of multiples and near multiples of 10 to and from 2-digit numbers. Year 2: Double and halve by partitioning. Mental addition of pairs of 2-digit numbers by partitioning or counting on. Mental subtraction of pairs of 2-digit numbers by counting back.
Year 1: Mental addition and subtraction to the next ten and partitioning to bridge ten. Sort calculations according to whether they will bridge ten or not. Year 2: Mental subtraction by counting up or counting back.
Year 1: Name and sort 3D shapes and their properties. Read the time to the half hour on analogue and digital clocks. Year 2: Name 3D shapes and identify their propertie.; Tell the time to nearest quarter and five minutes on analogue clocks.
Year 1: Count in 2s, 5s and 10s. Mental multiplication using a penny number line. Work out mental division problems by finding how many sets. Year 2: Work out mental multiplication and division using beaded lines and landmarked lines. Understand multiplication as the inverse of division. Using landmarked lines to solve mystery multiplications and divisions.
Year 1: Find totals to 20p. Find totals using other number facts. Add and subtract single-digit numbers to two-digit numbers using facts. Year 2: Place three-digit numbers on a beaded line. Understand place value in three-digit numbers and write place value additions. Count in 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s.
Year 1: Use pairs to ten to find the complement to the next multiple of ten, using a bead string/beaded number line. Mental addition of single digit numbers to 2-digit numbers using patterns and number facts including doubles, pairs to 10 and finding numbers that can easily be added together using these facts. Year 2: Mental addition of pairs of 2-digit numbers by partitioning or counting on. Mental subtraction by counting up or counting back. Choose to add or subtract to solve money word problems.
Year 1: Recognise and use language relating to dates, including days of the week, weeks, months and years. Tell the time to the hour and half past the hour on analogue and digital clocks. Draw the hands on an analogue clock face to show a given time. Sequence events in chronological order using language, e.g. before and after, next, first, today, yesterday, tomorrow, morning, afternoon and evening. Draw, read and understand block graphs and pictograms. Year 2: Know by heart the names and order of the months of the year and days of the week. Construct a block graph. Tell the time to the nearest ¼ hour and nearest 5 minutes.
Year 1: Doubling and halving. Understand multiplication as repeated addition and use multiplication sentences to describe a practical problem. Begin to make some links to division (how many sets of). Understand grouping as one model of division. Begin to describe how to solve a word problem. Year 2: Halve or double a 2-digit number. Know that multiplication is the inverse of division. Mental multiplication and division using beaded or landmarked lines.
Year 1: Find totals to 20p. Find change from 20p by finding the difference/counting on, and work out how to give the change. Year 2: Use and recognise coins. Add 2-digit amounts using partitioning or counting up. Subtract by finding a difference (Frog)/counting back. Use addition and subtraction to solve 2-step money problems.
Year 1: Recognise 3D shapes. Describe direction and position of 3D shapes using these facts. Know the order of days of the week and months of the year. Tell the time to the half hour and find times half an hour later. Year 2: Find halves and quarters of amounts. Solve fraction, multiplication and division word problems. Tell the time in analogue and digital to the ¼ hour and 5 minutes.
