This Work Group aims to help teachers in EYFS improve their mathematical subject knowledge alongside developing understanding of age-appropriate pedagogies suitable for Early Years settings. Sessions will have an emphasis on promoting children’s Early Number Sense (a key indicator of later mathematical success).
Aligned with the NCETM’s Early Years materials, this pathway will explore the development trajectories of three key areas of early mathematics development: Comparison, Cardinality and Composition alongside three associated pedagogical aspects.
Participants (supported by their schools) are expected to:
This programme is available to practitioners in school’s who would like to develop their subject knowledge for teaching mathematics in the Early Years.
The programme may be pertinent for the following:
The Early Years SKTM: Number Patterns and Structures project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.
The face-to-face sessions will be a full day (exact timings to be confirmed) and held at Hallam Fields Primary School, Long Meadow Way, Birstall, Leicestershire LE4 3LL
