Leads: Heather Martin, Rebecca Longworth

Overview

This Work Group is designed to support Early Years teachers in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, enabling them to understand, teach and support pupils with their maths across the provision. The programme this year will look at number patterns and structures. There will be three sessions and a task to complete between sessions. This year an extra session has been developed to focus on reviewing best practice in Early Years and how these approaches link to the principles of teaching for mastery.

This programme is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.

Building Firm Mathematical Foundations in Reception

Lead: Alex Hodges

Overview

This Work Group is aimed at schools who are currently developing a teaching for mastery approach in KS1 and KS2. Early Years practitioners and senior leaders will develop their understanding of how EY best practice feeds into a teaching for mastery approach, and build firm foundations for all children so that they are ready to progress into Year 1. Participants will consider how to build clear progression in mathematical concepts and how to make these accessible to young children.

This programme is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.

When and where

Tuesday 8th December, 2.00-4.00pm

Thursday 4th February, 2.00-4.00pm
