Making Maths Matters
Supporting children's mathematical learning in the EYFS
This session will focus on extending children's learning in mathematics through the development of challenging and inspiring practical and play based experiences, high quality adult interactions and a learning environment which promotes all aspects of mathematical development. The core theme of the session will be tuning into children's interests and everyday activities and building mathematical opportunities around these.
There will be opportunities to consider how best to capture children's progress in mathematics and provide meaningful opportunities for recording children's mathematical knowledge and understanding. Delegates will also have opportunities to take part in practical activities and to view inspiring visual images showing how other schools have developed mathematically rich learning environments.
Target audience: Nursery and reception practitioners, EYFS leaders, senior leaders, teaching assistants, subject leaders.
