Pre-course Information
Refreshments will be available throughout the course but please bring your own lunch.

By the end of the training participants will:

  • understand early mathematical concepts that it is important for children to develop deep understanding around, including through the use of everyday contexts and resources

  • be able to help young children fully explore (and/or articulate) their mathematical thinking whilst moving from counting to calculation

  • understand key principles associated with implementing a mastery approach in mathematics

  • develop a wide range of opportunities for enhancing day-to-day provision for mathematical development, including in the context of problem solving, using the full environment

  • review Early Years related policy linked with the learning and teaching of mathematics  

  • ensure professional learning is developed across all staff members in the provision, so that positive attitudes to mathematics are promoted as part of children’s learning experiences.
