Building Firm Mathematical Foundations in Reception
Work group participants will consider how to build clear progression in mathematical concepts and how to make these accessible to young children. Attention will be given to appropriate pedagogy, in particular the nature of direct teaching within an Early Years context. The sessions aim to support schools (EYFS teachers and school leadership teams) in providing a consistent message about high quality mathematics provision in the early years and how this provision supports progression into the next phase of learning. Schools will develop an understanding of how to link teaching in EYFS and teaching for mastery ‘5 Big Ideas’ in Year 1.
Work groups in this project aim to secure Early Years best practice and build firm foundations for all children by the end of the Reception year. Practitioners and senior leaders will develop their understanding as to how Early Years best practice feeds into a teaching for mastery approach and support progression through the school.
CODE Maths Hub will be recruiting participants for this FREE work group early in the Autumn Term.
Nursery Research Group
Broadening our cross phase Teaching for Mastery Research Groups and taking the popular Early Years/Reception Work Group forward, this is an exciting opportunity to explore mathematical thinking with nursery aged children. You will work alongside experts and collaborate with fellow professionals to deepen your understanding of how young children learn mathematics. To find out more and apply, download our flyer below.

Latest news from CODE Maths Hub
Firstly, all of us at CODE Maths Hub hope that you, your families and school communities are well during these challenging times. As you will be aware that we have suspended all face-to-face contact over this summer term, although we have been able to maintain some support as we become more accomplished with the use of online meetings! This ‘Catch-up’ is a short update to keep you informed of the current work that is happening and also to make you aware of upcoming opportunities.
Have you seen the latest newsletter ‘Bespoke’ from NCETM? It summarises some of the findings from the latest evaluation of the Teaching For Mastery Programme. This evaluation shows that the Programme is having a ‘significant, positive impact at a number of levels’.
The England-China Exchange is well under way with three of our teachers taking part this year. Ross, Greg and Nicola are having an amazing time and learning lots in Shanghai. We look forward to hearing all about it and we are very excited to welcome teachers from Shanghai for the reciprocal visit early next year.
