Developing a feel for number – EYFS

Course Description

In light of the 2018-2019 EYFS pilot, the publication Bold Beginnings and the possible future reduction of ELG in mathematics, this course seeks to show how to promote the thinking of young children in the Early Years Foundation Stage and develop a feel for number. During the afternoon, delegates will think about how they can start to draw out maths related concepts across a variety of common EYFS themes.

Delegates will also have the opportunity to experience a variety of activities and ideas that can be immediately used at school the next day and explore new number related books and resources to use to aid planning.

This is an active and hands on course. It is advisable to bring an iPad or camera phone with you to capture the various models and images and a memory stick should you require any bespoke electronic resources on the day from Liz.

At the end of the course, a pack of resources, including a pdf copy of the powerpoint mini slides handout will be available to download from www.dropbox.com
