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 maths plans were written to the National Numeracy Strategy and the 1999 curriculum. The Medium Term Plan specifies the maths topics and objectives covered for single and mixed year classes as well as links to the 2006 Renewed Framework Objectives.

Mark 2-digit numbers on a landmarked line. Compare numbers using the symbols < and >. Use ordinal numbers in context up to 10th and beyond. Use knowledge of order of numbers and properties of number to describe and sort numbers. Solve logic problems. Round 2-digit numbers to the nearest multiple of ten.
Find all pairs with a total of 20 and record the corresponding addition and subtraction facts, recognise the use of a symbol to represent an unknown. Imagine what action would be needed to solve a word problem and decide what calculation is necessary (mental addition or subtraction), relate counting on or back in tens to finding a multiple of ten more or less.
Mental addition and subtraction of near multiples. Visualise common 3D solids, identify from pictures in different positions and orientations. Sort, make and describe 3D shapes, referring to their properties.
Estimate, measure and compare weights, choosing and using suitable standard units and suitable measuring instruments. Answer a question by collecting and recording data, representing it as block graphs and pictograms to show results.
Find totals up to 50p using two or more coins. Work out what coins can be used to pay an amount up to £1. Mental addition and subtraction using partitioning and counting up. Find all possibilities by making an ordered list.
Twos, fives and tens: count, recognise multiples, use grouping to count larger groups of objects. Find, describe and continue patterns. Understand multiplication as repeated addition. Use pairs to ten to find the complement to the next multiple of ten. Mental addition or subtraction of a single digit to or from a 2-digit number by bridging multiples of ten using knowledge of pairs to ten and place value.
Visualise common 2D shapes, identify from pictures in different positions and orientations. Sort, make and describe 2D shapes, referring to their properties. Identify reflective symmetry in patterns and 2D shapes and draw lines of symmetry.
Use lists, tables and diagrams to sort objects. Explain choices using appropriate language, including ‘not’. Understand difference as one model of mental subtraction. Subtract 2-digit numbers lying either side of a multiple of 10 by counting up, using pairs to ten and place value.
Use units of time and know the relationship between them. Measure duration of activities. Know the days of the week. Use multiplication and division sentences to describe an array and repeated hops on a number line. Understand grouping as one model of division. Begin to understand that division can leave some left over. Learn multiplication facts for the 2, 5 and 10 times tables. Solve a word problem and decide what calculation is necessary (mental multiplication or division).
Find halves and quarters of numbers by folding strips. Find doubles up to double 15 and doubles of multiples of 5 up to double 50 and corresponding halves. Identify near doubles using doubles already known. Use units of time (seconds, minutes, hours, days and weeks) and know the relationships between them. Read the time to the quarter of an hour on digital and analogue clocks.
Mental addition and subtraction using near multiples, partitioning, place value and number facts. Sort calculations as to whether number facts or place value can be used to help. Use multiplication and division sentences to describe an array and repeated hops on a number line. Understand grouping as one model of division. Begin to understand that division can leave some left over.
