Work Groups for Early Years Practitioners


London SW Maths Hub will deliver nationally coordinated projects being run by the Maths Hub network in 2020/2021 in the following areas:
Building Firm Mathematical Foundations in Reception 
Work Groups in this project are aimed at schools that are currently developing a teaching for mastery approach in KS1 and KS2. Early Years practitioners and senior leaders will develop their understanding of how Early Years 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.
Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics Programmes - Early Years
This project is designed to support Early Years teachers in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, thus enabling them to understand, teach and support pupils with their mathematics across the provision.
There are two types of SKTM Early Years pathway:
Pathway One: Number Patterns and Structures
Pathway Two: Pattern, Shape, Space and Measures
