Open our sample 'Year 5 Autumn Unit 1' to find out how the blocks of units work.
Which to use: Hamilton’s new flexible maths blocks or our adaptable weekly plans?
This is a question we get asked quite often, and it’s a tricky one. But we can help.
The National Curriculum content is arranged below in mathematical category blocks. Blocks are divided into units, each comprising a set of specific skills within that category. Autumn Term blocks are fully available and Spring blocks will follow shortly. You can navigate back to the weekly plans by selecting your year group on the red bar above.
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.
In order to ensure that every part of the Year 6 content is covered before the statutory assessments in mid-May, there are nearly 13 weeks of teaching in the Autumn Term, 11 weeks in Spring and 27 days before the SATs in Summer. Each teacher will need to pace this teaching to suit their class and, crucially, their term dates. You may need to consider bringing some of the Spring Term teaching into Autumn.
