Course outline

Children’s mathematical momentum begins from birth and continues to develop through their child-initiated play, talking and thinking. It is also underpinned by the development of mastery orientation, dispositions and skills, of which many are rippled throughout the Characteristics of Effective Learning especially creating and thinking critically.

It is this combination of play, talk and critical thinking which adults need to observe, understand and use to inform children’s next steps and support their progress in mathematical development. The two webinar sessions with Di will be an opportunity to:

  • Think about children’s mathematical development from birth to 6+ and how we must maintain their mathematical momentum especially in the current circumstances of children’s future transitions into school
  • Unpick children’s mathematical development as it relates to creative and critical thinking and mastery orientation 
  • Use the Characteristics of Effective Learning pages from Di's Observation Tool Kit materials. This will be an opportunity to do some team CPD and forms the gap task between the two webinar sessions

This webinar is informed by the Talk for Maths Mastery Initiative and a forthcoming book called, How to recognise and support mathematical mastery in young children’s play. Learning from the Talk for Maths Mastery Initiative

This course will run in two parts a week apart, with a gap task in between to reinforce the key concepts explored within the webinar. You will be sent further details before each webinar of how to join the sessions. If you are unable to make the date or time of either webinar, you can still register and you'll receive the recording of each webinar and any materials afterwards.
