The focus for Early Years work has progressed to support practitioners at each stage of their development.  For practitioners who are new to EY, or with limited EY maths experience and training, there is a project that explores key concepts in early mathematical development and effective pedagogies that support EY mathematics learning. For experienced EY practitioners (3+ years) looking to develop aspects of their practice, there are focused projects that will enhance practice on a particular theme in EY maths.  These projects will enable participants to review practice, consider current research and develop their leadership capacity.

Who is this for?

All Early Years practitioners, including those who participated in the same Work Group in 2017-18.

What is involved?

Four days over the year with gap tasks between them to embed learning.  Three days will be face-to-face training + one day working with colleagues in other settings.  There is the expectation that gap tasks will contribute to a resource that is being developed nationally.

Intended Outcomes:

New practitioners and those with limited experience will increase their own subject knowledge and evelop effective pedagogies around EY maths teaching. Through understanding the principles and peadagogies of EY best practice, practitioners will be able to provide children with access to deep mathematical understanding.

More experienced 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.

The Work Group will be led by Nathan Crook
