Year 2 Flexible Maths Blocks

Select Units for your Blocks

The KS1 National Curriculum statutory content for Year 2 is arranged in mathematical topic blocks over the year. Each block is divided into units. Each unit is focussed around one or two specific skills within that topic.

There is a large amount of subject content to be covered in Year 2, and most teachers wish to complete all new teaching before Easter, so that Summer Term can be rehearsal and reinforcement before the SATs. Therefore, we provide 72 days teaching for Autumn Term and 60 days teaching for Spring Term. This means that if a teacher taught all the content in all the units in every Block, s/he would need to teach maths every single day in both terms. As teachers, we do understand that this is neither possible nor desirable. So please read our ‘Planning Guidance’.

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