Developing Deep Mathematical Learning in the Early Years

Maths mastery in the Early Years through the use of pattern

"Pattern is less a topic of mathematics than a defining quality of mathematics itself. Mathematics 'makes sense' because its patterns allow us to generate our understanding from one situation to another. Children who expect mathematics to 'make sense' look for patterns" Erikson Institute's Early Math Collaborative

Course Content:
This project will equip you to identify, understand, observe and trial the key features involved in designing effective practice for Early Years mathematics, ready to share and develop back in your own setting/school. 

Guest Speaker:
Dr Sue Gifford from Roehampton University

As this is a working group, participants are expected to develop their own practice, work closely with their co-participant and keep a reflective journal. 

Aimed at: 
School based practitioners leading the planning and provision of mathematics in Early Years (i.e. Nursery / Reception). Maths Subject Leaders and / or Early Years Leaders will be invited to join Day 3. 

Day 1: Monday 26th February 2018  
Day 2: Monday 23rd April 2018
Day 3: Monday 11th June 2018
