Recognising Best Practice in Early Maths

Audience: Primary
Multiple sessions
  • Primary School Improvement Training Package
  • Foundation

Brief Overview

The first few years of a child’s life are especially important for mathematics development. Research shows that early mathematical knowledge predicts later reading ability and general education and social progress. Conversely, children who start behind in mathematics tend to stay behind throughout their whole educational journey." This quote shows the importance of recognising and Ensuring the Best Practice in the Early Maths.

The focus of the course is to demonstrate practical ways to improve the provision and attainment of the pupils in Foundation Stage. Gap Tasks will be given between each event so that the knowledge and skills learnt can be practised within the school setting. The project will support practitioners in their understanding of how best to support pupils in the indoor and outdoor environment.

Please note: This is a two-part course. Delegates must commit to attending both sessions and completing the intersessional tasks. Session One will focus on the Early Learning Goals; Session Two will explore the rest of the Statutory requirements that are stated in the Framework.
