Year 5/6 Flexible Maths Blocks

Select Units for your Blocks

The Year 5 and Year 6 National Curriculum content is arranged below in mathematical category blocks. Year 5/6 maths blocks are divided into units, each comprising a set of specific skills within that category.

Hamilton strongly advise teachers to tailor your teaching by teaching selected units in shorter blocks through the term to suit the needs of your class. Use the 'short blocks' button on the right to see our recommended route for progression through shorter blocks.
