This Work Group will explore young children’s conceptual development of early number skills. We will collaborate to review key themes presented in current research ideas and reflect on implications for classroom practice. Sessions will include elements that are practical and fun, capturing the essence of play-based learning. Colleagues will have opportunities to identify the big ideas behind mathematical development and be asked to share findings from class-based gap tasks.
This Work Group is led by Janine Davenall who is a leading EYFS Practitioner and has an MA in EY Maths from the University of Roehampton
