This course is for all Early Years teachers, particularly those teaching in reception and will cover key concepts in early mathematical development and effective pedagogies that support EY mathematics learning. Focused projects will enhance practice on a particular theme in EY maths and enable participants to review practice, consider current research and develop their leadership capacity.
There will be 3 days of workshops with other practitioners on the programme, Independent study and setting-based work including gap tasks and evaluation and online discussion as part of a professional community, with support and mentoring from the Work Group Lead.
At the end of this course, practitioners will increase their knowledge base, engage with research, analyse their own practice and collaborate with peers. They will be able to share their new knowledge and approaches with colleagues to increase levels of children’s engagement and confidence in maths.
