It is essential that all children develop firm mathematical foundations in a way that is engaging, and appropriate for their age. Our nationally accredited professional development programmes support all professionals working in Early Years.

Early Years Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics (SKTM) – Bury (Programme 1)

Starts 18th November. Please note, we are running two Early Years SKM programmes this academic year; participants should select one programme only .

PROGRAMME 1: Online sessions and at Woodbank Primary School, Bury (if possible)

This popular programme 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.

The key areas covered will be number patterns and structures, shape, space and measures.

This CPD is delivered by NCETM PD Lead accredited Early Years Professionals.

Early Years Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics (SKTM) – Stockport (Programme 2)

Starts 26th November. Please note, we are running two Early Years SKM programmes this academic year; participants should select one programme only .

PROGRAMME 2: Online sessions and at Pownall Green Primary School, Stockport (if possible)

This popular programme 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.

Building Firm Mathematical Foundations in Reception

This Work Group is aimed at schools who 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.
