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 Y1 maths plans cover all of the statutory objectives of the National Curriculum for England for Year 1.
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!
Recite numbers to 100; count up to 100 objects (for example beads on a bead bar); count on in tens from single-digit numbers and back; order numbers to 100 on a track, then a beaded line; compare two numbers less than 100, say which is more or less; say a number between any given neighbouring pairs of multiples of ten (for example 40 and 50). Work out halves and quarters of shapes and amounts.
Add and subtract 10 or 11 from 2-digit numbers. Mental addition and subtraction using near multiples and place value. Includes bar model examples.
Use pairs to add to 10 and use pairs to ten to bridge ten when adding and then subtracting with visual support. Sort calculations according to whether they will bridge ten or not. Mental addition and subtraction using partitioning and counting back. Includes bar model examples.
Visualise and name common 3D shapes, describe their features, use them to make patterns and models. Use vocabulary related to time. Read the time to the hour (o’clock) and half past the hour. Includes bar model examples.
Mental multiplication and division: Use counting in 2s, 5s or 10s to solve a practical problem involving repeated addition. Begin to use a penny number line to work out multiplication by finding how many sets of. Work out simple division problems by finding how many sets in a given number.
Mental addition and subtraction with money: Find totals to 20p, find totals of different amounts using number facts and partitioning. Add ten and twenty pence to different amounts. Find change by finding the difference and counting on. Find differences between money amounts.
Use pairs to ten to find the complement to the next multiple of ten, using a bead string or beaded number line for support. Add single digit numbers to 2-digit numbers using patterns and number facts including doubles, pairs to 10 and finding numbers that can easily be added together using these facts. Mental addition using partitioning. Includes bar model examples.
Know the order of days of the week and months of the year, say a consecutive day/month. Tell the time to the nearest half hour, find times half an hour later. Recognise 3D shapes and discuss how they have been turned; describe direction and position of 3D shapes.
Mental multiplication and division: Double and halve. Understand multiplication as repeated addition. Use multiplication sentences to describe a practical problem and begin to make some links to division (how many sets of). Understand grouping as one model of division. Begin to describe how to solve a word problem. Includes bar model examples.
Add and subtract single-digit numbers to and from 2-digit numbers using facts. Know which operation to use to work out number sentences. Find totals of money amounts and know the best order to add amounts. Work out change by finding the difference. Mental addition using partitioning and mental subtraction using counting up.
Recognise and use language relating to dates, including days of the week, weeks, months and years. Tell the time to the hour and half past the hour and draw the hands on a clock face to show these times. Recognise half-past digital and analogue times. Sequence events in chronological order using language, for example before and after, next, first, today, yesterday, tomorrow, morning, afternoon and evening.
