Homework support for teachers

Hamilton provide maths homework for Reception through Year 6. 

There are twelve activities a term – that is one a week taking into account festivals and school trips and allowing a little flexibility!  Choose the activity to fit work you are doing.  It is important that the activities you select lead in to the work you are about to do with the children so that you can do adequate follow-up in class. The activities are linked to key skills.

We have arranged many of the activities so that if you have a mixed-year class there are matching activities for each year-group, e.g. there is a Telephone Keypad Numbers activity for both Y1 and Y2. Look out for these pairs – they make the introduction to the homework you do with mixed-year classes much easier. 

There is a range of support documentation for you to download and use with different age groups below. Use the tabs at the very bottom of the page to find maths homework for your year group.
