Course outline

Di has been leading an Extended Professional Development Initiative with 14 schools in Sheffield focusing on Talk for Maths Mastery. This builds on a previous years initiative called Talk for Reading. The cluster worked together  as a community of learners, an inspiring experience as the group  developed their  thinking and practice together, sharing ideas and co-constructing good early years practice.  The  work focused on two important questions:

  • How do we make sure that we maintain the momentum of children’s mathematical development and learning from 2yrs old to 6+ (Y1) – building firm foundations on children’s starting points?


  • How do we make the links across children’s mathematical development making sure that the next steps of learning and teaching support their progress from 2yrs old to Y1?

Di will share examples from practice including the clusters use of Learning Stories and the development of a TFMM exemplification.   Links will also be made to the Characteristics of Effective Learning particularly Creating and Thinking Critically; Mastery and maths and Sustained Shared Thinking.
