National Curriculum

Year 4/5 Maths Plans

These plans cover the statutory objectives of the National Curriculum for England for Year 4 and Year 5.

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. 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, Problem-solving Investigations or NNS-examples select  Year 4 or Year 5 on the red bar above.
