Speaker 1:
Ian Taylor is the National Leader for Mathematics at the Academies Enterprise Trust (AET). AET maths has developed into one of the highest achieving groups for primary maths outcomes in the country. Their systems support over 2000 schools throughout the country with many of their schools performing in the top 5% in the country. The team have created one of the countries leading schemes of learning that progresses from EYFS through to year 6. Delegates will receive free access to this resource on the day.

Speaker 2:
Jude Twani will stir our thinking around the pressure to achieve the early learning goals for maths and consider what really counts from the child’s perspective. This key note will focus on children’s natural curiosity and how it is one of the key drivers of mathematical learning, resulting in high levels of involvement. It takes a skilful adult who can spot the maths in play and provoke their fascinations further. Through images and videos Jude will help us to explore how to set up a mathematically rich and meaningful environment, the importance of self-initiated activity and the critical role of the adult in promoting and developing mathematics.

Jude is the Regional Development Manager (South East) for Early Excellence and has many years of experience in teaching across primary and post-16 and found her home in the early years! She has been an LA consultant, assessor, trainer and inspector and was one of the associates working with BEAM. She developed a passion for early years maths as a result of her own “fear” of the subject and vowed no child should ever leave early years (or anywhere) feeling like that. Her book, “Let’s Talk about Maths”, co-authored with Michael Jones, offers simple and common sense approaches to supporting maths in the early years.

A recent delegate recently commented:

“The style of delivery was fabulous, funny, engaging, connecting in so many ways, so thank you. I left buzzing and can’t wait to share further. It was impossible to take notes because I didn’t want to miss her animated facial expressions and brilliant acting as she passionately shared her expertise.”
