A pathway of Blocks to work towards the updated EYFS & National Curriculum
The link to our oldWeekly Plansfor Reception/Y1 maths has been removed. Those materials are out of date, not referencing the statutory EYFS update (2021). Short/ Longer Block materials provide improved EYFS pedagogy, with explicit links to characteristics of effective learning, as described in Development Matters.
Medium Term Planning - covering the 2021 EYFS framework - also links to the Ready-to-Progress criteria.

Procedural fluency is fundamental to numeracy, and Hamilton's practice worksheets are carefully differentiated for children working toward Age Related Expectations (ARE), at ARE and at greater depth. Practice is linked to individual objectives-based units, but you can also explore sets of worksheets for the whole year.
