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.
In 2021-22 we will be running two groups for this. One of our Work Groups is led by Janine Davenall (who will lead this at Fox Primary, RBKC) and the other one is led by Siobhan Gallagher (based at Charville Academy, Hillingdon). When applying, please state your preference of which Work Group you would like to join.
