This Work Group aims to help teachers in EYFS improve their mathematical subject knowledge alongside developing understanding of age appropriate pedagogies suitable for Early Years settings. Sessions will have an emphasis on the ‘Number’ ELG and strategies that promote children’s Early Number Sense (a key indicator of later mathematical success). Aligned with the NCETM’s Early Years materials, the Work Group will explore the development trajectories of three key areas of early mathematics development: Comparison, Cardinality and Composition. This Work Group contains the subject knowledge and pedagogy aspects that used to be part of East Midlands South’s successful Early Years F2 TRG: Developing ENS
Participants (supported by their schools) are expected to:
The programme is available to teachers in EYFS who would like to develop their subject knowledge for teaching mathematics.
The Work Group may be equally pertinent for the following:
The Early Years SKTM: Number Patterns and Structures project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.
