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 Y6 maths plans cover all of the statutory objectives of the National Curriculum for England for Year 6.
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!
Understand place value in 6-digit numbers. Place 6-digit numbers on a line. Compare 6-digit numbers. Add and subtract 1s, 10s, 100s, 1000s, 10,000s and 100,000s. Use compact column addition to add any pair of 5 digit numbers.
Understand place value in numbers with 3 decimal places, compare, place on lines and begin to round to the nearest whole, 0.1 or 0.01. Multiply and divide by 10, 100 and 1000 to give answers with 0, 1, 2 or 3 decimal places. Solve problems involving number. Use compact column addition to add 2 or 3 amounts of money or numbers with 2 decimal places in a measures context, e.g. metres, rounding to approximate. Includes bar model examples.
Add several prices, then find change from £50 and £100 and a difference between two amounts of money using counting up subtraction (Frog). Use compact decomposition to subtract pairs of 5-digit numbers and to subtract 3-digit and 4-digit numbers from 5-digit numbers. Choose whether to use counting up (Frog) or decomposition to subtract pairs of 5-digit numbers. Includes bar model examples.
Name parts of circles (radius, diameter, circumference) and know that the diameter is twice the radius. Classify and sort quadrilaterals. Find unknown angles in any triangles, quadrilaterals, and regular polygons. Find unknown angles around a point, on a straight line or vertically opposite.
Find common multiples and factors. Find numbers that have a pair of prime factors. Find equivalent fractions. Simplify fractions using multiples and factors. Compare and order fractions with unrelated denominators. Find non-unit fractions of numbers using short division and mental multiplication. Includes bar model examples.
Place 5-digit numbers on a line and round to the nearest 10, 100 or 1000. Place 6-digit numbers on a line and round to the nearest 10, 100, 1000, 10,000 or 100,000. Use short multiplication to multiply 4-digit numbers and 4-digit amounts of money by single-digit numbers. Use rounding to approximate.
Recognise fraction and decimal equivalents. Use short division to divide 3-digit and 4-digit numbers by 1-digt numbers and by 11 and 12; round up or down. Write answers with remainders as fractions, e.g. 23¾, simplify fractions and write as decimals, e.g. 23.75.
Add/subtract multiples of 0.01 to/from numbers with two decimal places, crossing multiples of 0.1 and 1. Subtract numbers with one or two decimal places by counting up from the smaller to the larger number (Frog), e.g. 3.76 – 1.8 or 13.4 – 2.76. Understand place value in numbers with three decimal places. Count on and back in steps of 0.001 and 0.01 and add and subtract multiples of 0.1, 0.01 or 0.001. Includes bar model examples.
Convert between grams and kilograms, millilitres and litres (up to 3 decimal places). Convert between metres and kilometres. Know approximate conversions between common imperial units used in daily life and metric units. Draw line graphs and read intermediate points. Read timetables using the 24-hour clock and calculate time intervals and add lengths of times.
Identify, describe and build 3D shapes using nets. Turn improper fractions into mixed numbers and vice versa. Compare, order, add and subtract fractions with unrelated denominators.
Use grid multiplication to multiply 3-digit numbers by 2-digit numbers. Use long multiplication to multiply 3-digit numbers by numbers between 10 and 20, then between 20 and 30. Solve a mix of +, –, × and ÷ mental and written calculations. Choose which operations are necessary to solve single-step and multi-step word problems.
