Level 3

1 day


This advanced, full-day course is designed for classroom teachers who want to deepen their knowledge of teaching mathematics to children in the Early Years Foundation Stage. You’ll gain a practical understanding of lesson structure and the pedagogical knowledge required to teach young pupils so that they meet the DfE’s 17 Early Learning Goals. Participants who successfully complete the course will receive a printable certificate of completion for their records.

Course Objectives

This professional development course is designed to nurture:

  1. A deep understanding of teaching and learning mathematics in the Early Years Foundation Stage as defined by the DfE’s Statutory Framework
  2. A practical understanding of lesson structure and learning experiences to help children develop positive attitudes and interests in mathematics
  3. An expert level of understanding of the topic of teaching mathematics so that all children develop the necessary building blocks to excel mathematically

Educators will leave the course with a deep understanding of the teaching and learning of mathematics in the Early Years. Working through real school lessons, where they become the students, educators will have the opportunity to learn and explore through expert modelling.

This course looks to equip teachers with the necessary content and pedagogical knowledge to teach young pupils in order for them to secure a strong grounding in mathematical development and meet the numerical early learning goals.
