What is involved?

This will deepen subject knowledge around Number Patterns and Structure. Theory and developmental trajectories will be explored through a range of practical activities that participants can use back in their settings.

Who can apply?

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

If your school is currently more focused on preparing for teaching for mastery, you may want to consider engaging with the Building Firm Mathematical Foundations in Reception project. Ask your local Maths Hub for more details.

What is the cost?

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

We reserve the right to charge a £75 fee for non-attendance with less than 1 weeks notice.

‘Early Years settings and schools should invest in developing practitioners’ own understanding of mathematics, their understanding of how children typically learn, and how this relates to effective pedagogy.’

- EEF Maths EY KS1 Guidance Report.

It has long been recognised that maths teaching is enhanced when the teachers are confident about the subject matter. Maths Hubs work with a range of partners to ensure there is effective professional development of new teachers of maths so that they have the specialist knowledge required to support the learning of maths. This project is offered to impact on developing the subject knowledge and pedagogical knowledge for all practitioners teaching and supporting the learning of early maths.

Participants and their schools must be able to commit to the full 2 year programme. This is likely to involve some face-to-face activity alongside online collaboration.

During the programme, participants will be asked to undertake tasks with learners to deepen their thinking about the learning of maths, and to share this with colleagues. It is asked that school leaders support their staff to complete this work.
