This course aims to develop practitioners understanding of mathematical development in young children in the setting and at home and to be able to provide workshops to support home setting learning.
It can be argued that young children are born mathematicians. Their brains naturally seek out patterns in order to understand the world around them. As their cognitive skills develop their mathematical knowledge becomes more sophisticated as they are able to use symbols such as numbers and other mathematical language in their play.
The home is natural place for mathematical investigation and understanding to flourish. This course will explore how young children develop mathematical knowledge both in the setting and at home and will consider how the setting can support parents in this area of learning.
This is a two part course and practitioners will be asked to complete a task at their setting before commencing part two.
Part one will examine mathematical and brain development in the EYFS and Part two will explore activities and training workshops which practitioners can present in their setting to parents.
Practitioners will be provided with a training pack to use to present to parents/carers and families in their setting. This will include workshop materials and ideas to develop in your setting.
- Mathematical understanding and brain development in the EYFS
- Stages of mathematical development
- Exploring practical ideas to do back in your setting.
- How to deliver a workshop,
