Building Firm Mathematical Foundations in Early Years (supporting transition to Year 1) Essex 1
This course builds on the previous early years maths workshops, held in 2017-18, 2018-19 with Lucy Parker, Zoe Akers and Diane Campkin.
Who is this for? This project is aimed at schools who have previously taken part in our 3 day work shops and that have previously participated as a TRG school in the Primary Teaching for Mastery Programme. A pair of teachers should attend from each school: a Reception teacher and the teacher leading maths within the school. One of the sessions will be aimed at senior leaders within the school, and the headteacher or deputy head should attend this session.
Overview: This project will further exploring best practice in Early Years and how this approach builds secure foundations in mathematics for transition into a teaching for mastery approach in Year 1. It will consider the progression in EY mathematical concepts – what children need to know and understand; approaches to planning and the inclusion of all children; and appropriate resources and contexts for effective learning.
What is involved? A commitment to attend all three days across the academic year. Participants will take part in research and specific gap tasks will be set, to allow participants to develop aspects of progression in learning in their own provision, and enable sharing of best practice.
This CPD is FREE to attend.
However, participants must commit to the whole course and failure to show at any workshops may result in a non-attendance fee being charged.
