Supporting effective transition from Reception to Year 1
Many schools are adopting a teaching for mastery approach in mathematics. The starting point for a school is usually Year 1 and then thought is given as to how the approach is built across KS1 and KS2. Schools naturally want to consider the teaching of mathematics in Reception and how the transition to Year 1 can best support children’s learning. The Work Groups in this project will start by exploring best practice in Early Years and how the principles might build a secure foundation in mathematics for transition into a teaching for mastery approach in Year 1. It will consider the curriculum – what children need to know and understand; approaches to planning and the inclusion of all children; and appropriate resources and contexts for effective learning.
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.

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.
