Develop mathematical subject knowledge and understand the pedagogy that underpins the teaching of it. 

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 in maths in the classroom.

Who can take part? 

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

What is involved? 

There are two types of SKTM Early Years pathways: 

  • Pathway One: Number Patterns and Structures
  • Pathway Two: Pattern, Shape, Space and Measures      

This Work Group will follow Pathway Two in 2021/22.  Each pathway has three core elements, three associated pedagogy sessions, and a task to support the transition from theory to practice. There is also a final core unit that aims to review quality provision.  

The programme will take place across four workshops (9.30 – 3.30 pm), as well as some classroom and school-based activities.

What will you learn? 

Participants will: 

  • develop enhanced maths subject knowledge with a particular emphasis on developmental progression in the Early Years to ensure sequences of learning are cohesive
  • consider the learning opportunities and pedagogical approaches across the wider provision – reviewing and enhancing the opportunities to promote mathematical learning across the provision. 

What is the cost? 

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