Work Group Outline
This project is designed to support Early Years teachers in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, thus enabling them to understand, teach and support pupils with their mathematics across the provision.
What is involved?
There are two types of SKTM Early Years pathway:
- Pathway One: Number Patterns and Structures (4C’s)
- Pathway Two: Pattern, Shape, Space and Measures.
Each pathway has three maths sessions, three associated pedagogy sessions and a task to complete between sessions based on an action research cycle. This year an extra session has been developed, which is delivered at the end of the pathway. It is designed to focus on reviewing best practice in Early Years and how these approaches link to the principles of teaching for mastery.
Who can apply?
All early years’ teachers & practitioners but particularly those in their first few years working with EYFS. It is suitable for those from both school based and PVI settings where there are children with the 3 to 5 EYFS age range. Preferably 2 participants from a setting will attend together.
What is the cost?
The SKTM – Early Years programme is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.
Who will be leading the group?
Zoe Akers and Lucy Parker will be leading these projects.
Lucy Parker from Acorn will be leading Pathway 1: Number
Zoe Akers from Matrix and Knebworth School will be leading Pathway 2: Pattern
