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 ‘Shapes, Space and Measures’ ELG and promote the understanding of relationships through verbalising generalisations and visualising spatial connections (key aspects to developing mathematical thinking). Aligned with the NCETM’s Early Years materials, the Work Group will explore the development trajectories of three key areas of early mathematics development: Pattern, Shapes & Space and Measures.
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 Programme may be equally pertinent for:
The Early Years SKTM: Pattern, Shape, Space and Measures project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.
