For Primary Schools

Subject Knowledge for Early Years Practitioners

This project is designed to support Early Years teachers in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, enabling them to understand, teach and support pupils with their mathematics across the provision.

Who can take part?

This programme is designed for individuals who would like to develop their specialist knowledge for teaching maths to three to five years olds. This may be particularly relevant for NQTs, teachers that have moved phases or teachers that have not received maths-specific training.

Number Patterns and Structures:

Participants will attend 6 online, half day sessions looking at the maths and pedagogy of number, patterns and structures. Participants will also complete 2 interim tasks based on an action research cycle.

What will you learn?

Participants and their schools will:

  • develop enhanced maths subject knowledge with a particular emphasis on developmental progression in the Early Years to ensure sequences of learning are cohesive
  • consider the learning opportunities and pedagogical approaches across the wider provision – reviewing and enhancing the opportunities to promote mathematical learning across the provision.

What is the cost?

The SKTM Early Years Programme project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.
