Event description

Description

This Work Group aims to ensure that Early Years practitioners have an awareness of the key concepts in Early Years maths provision and the opportunity to study one concept in greater detail. This concept will be developed through a focus on subject knowledge, how to plan for challenge, how to develop this provision across the setting and how to ensure professional learning is developed across all staff members in the provision. There will be the opportunity to share some examples of practice to contribute to a developing resource.

Participants in this Work Group will be expected to attend 4 days of training:

Day 1 Tuesday 27th February

Day 2: Tuesday 27th March

Day 3: Wednesday 25th April

Day 4: Wednesday 20th June

Time: 9am -3.30pm.

Participants will visit another setting for the morning of Day 3, and will return to Thorndown for lunch and the afternoon’s training.

Participants in this Work Group will be expected to complete a gap task following each session. At the final session, they will be expected to summarise their learning, share elements of practice which may be of benefit to other EY practitioners and contribute to the evaluation of the Work Group’s impact.

Participants will also be expected to share their learning with other EY practitioners in their school and their SLT.
