Course aim
To exemplify broad counting experiences and key early maths skills in the Early Years/Year 1

This workshop is suitable for Early Years and Year 1 teachers/teaching assistants who have yet to attend any CPD sessions led by Nathan Crook, either on behalf of the Oxfordshire Early Years Team or BBO/Enigma Maths Hubs

This training is fully funded by Oxfordshire Early Years. However, if you book a place but do not attend the session, and have not cancelled your place via Oxfordshire CPD Online within 48 hours of the start of the training, you will be charged £10.
Pre-course Information
This session will provide an overview about a suggested range of counting experiences that young mathematicians need to experience before they can transition towards calculation. In addition, a range of early maths skills will be modelled which, when taught explicitly, will provide children with secure foundations in their mathematical understanding.

This session will take place interactively with participants using meeting software (tbc). In advance of the session, delegates will need to:
* Download the meetings app
* Provide an email address to log onto the training. Please note this will need to be shared with the course trainer in order to access the training. The trainer will not use this information for any other purpose.
* Print or have available any materials/resources sent to them in advance
* Complete any pre-course task sent in advance

By the end of the training participants will be able:

  • To elicit the range of counting experiences that will benefit children as they prepare to move from counting to calculation.

  • To understand early mathematical concepts that it is important for children to develop deep understanding around, including through the use of everyday contexts and resources.

  • To elicit structured representations that children benefit from being exposed to, so they can fully explore and articulate their mathematical thinking whilst moving from counting to calculation
