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.
Hamilton's Y4 maths plans cover all of the statutory objectives of the National Curriculum for England for Year 4.
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. 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 Sheet allows 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.
This chart will help you if you are trying to use Hamilton Maths Plans and also teach in Blocks. This is an interim stage for Hamilton, as for next year we shall have a completely new flexible planning tool which will enable you to create your own blocks. Meantime, please look at the document carefully - it is three pages not one!
