Course Details

This course is suitable for classroom practitioners, Early Years leaders and school leaders keen to improve the Early years mathematics provision in their school.
This one day course will offer an opportunity to explore and develop teaching approaches in your Foundation Stage, drawing on the key principles of mastery in mathematics.  Teachers will discuss and analyse the structure of a mathematics lesson and will have the opportunity to observe a Maths lesson in a Reception classroom. The day will develop your subject knowledge and pedagogy, identifying key milestones in children’s number sense. Practitioners will also spend time discussing what makes effective independent provision in the Foundation stage and how we can support children to become enthusiastic and inquisitive mathematicians. They will leave with a range of practical approaches to embed the key mathematical ideas and concepts, which will contribute to outstanding outcomes for all.

The course will include:

  • Discussion around the key aspects of ‘mastery’ in Maths
  • Identifying the key milestones for children in relation to number and counting
  • Observation of a Maths lesson in a Reception classroom and discussion of lesson structure
  • Opportunities to play games that you can take back to the classroom
  • Ideas on how to use picture books within Maths
  • Exploration of teaching techniques, activities and lesson sequences
