About this event

Introductory session: Wednesday January 27th 4:00-5:00pm (SLT attend too)

Workshop 1: Thursday 25th Feb 1:30-3:30

Workshop 2: Thursday 29th April 1:30-3:30pm

Workshop 3: Wednesday May 26th 1:30-3:30pm

Workshop 4: Thursday 24th June 1:30-4:00pm

You are signing up for all the sessions.

Work Groups in this project are aimed at schools who are currently developing a teaching for mastery approach in KS1 and KS2. Prior attendance at an NCETM EYFS Subject Knowledge course is a pre-requisite to join this work group. Early Years practitioners and senior leaders will develop their understanding of how EY best practice feeds into a teaching for mastery approach, and build firm foundations for all children so that they are ready to progress into Year 1. Participants will consider how to build clear progression in mathematical concepts and how to make these accessible to young children.

What is involved?

This is an advanced course based around action research with most work occurring during gap tasks. Facilitated sessions will develop pedagogy and allow staff to develop their own practice in their setting.

**If you are new to EYFS/NQT/Teaching Assistant or have not had any maths subject knowledge training, then we would recommend signing up for the EYFS Subject Knowledge Course instead of this work group.**

Who can apply?

This is aimed at schools who have a commitment to teaching for mastery. On application, schools should explain to their Maths Hub how they have committed to teaching for mastery so far.

Schools who take part in the project should send a Reception teacher and the teacher leading on teaching for mastery in the school to the face-to-face sessions. At least one of the sessions will be aimed at senior leaders, so the headteacher or deputy should also attend this session

Expectations of participants and their schools

This is aimed at schools who have a commitment to teaching for mastery. On application, schools should explain to their Maths Hub how they have committed to teaching for mastery so far. Prior attendance at an EYFS NCETM subject knowledge course at Netley/other maths hub is recommended.

There is the expectation that participants will engage in research as part of their independent learning through the duration of this project. In addition to this there will be in-school work focusing on the EYFS teacher, maths lead and a member of the senior leadership team developing and improving practice which will inform future policy development.

All schools participating will choose three ‘focus children’, an emphasis on Work Group activity being mainly in school.

This project supports the strategic goal in developing the knowledge and practice of Reception year practitioners to ensure that all children develop a secure foundation in maths and are well prepared for teaching for mastery in KS1.
