EYFS - Mastering Maths in Reception
Monday 13th January 2020 - 9.30am - 3pm (reg. 9.15am) - Keynsham Community Space, Keynsham (please bring your own lunch, refreshments will be provided)
Maths Mastery has become a particularly hot topic in Early Years since the Bold Beginnings report and this day course will explore how the NCETM’s (National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics) five ‘big ideas’ of mastery can apply in the Reception classroom. The day will look at (1) coherence, (2) mathematical thinking, (3) representation and structure, (4) variation and (5) fluency). It will provide many practical ideas, including an in-depth look at how five and ten frames can be used in a systematic way during the Reception year and how the effective use of sentence stems can support children to talk about their mathematical ideas.
This day is a valuable opportunity for early years practitioners and maths leaders to refresh their thinking on teaching number in the reception year using a maths mastery approach.
The day will be led for us by Sue Rayner, an Early Years Consultant , Maths champion and associate of the Boolean Maths Hub
Certificates will be emailed to the delegate.
CLIMATE CHANGE: Please bring your own cup/water bottle with you as we are reducing the use of disposable cups.
