Year 2 Flexible Maths Blocks

Select Units for your Blocks

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 will be fully available by the end of June, with Spring blocks following 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. We will provide a recommended route for progression through shorter blocks in June.
