Early Years Practitioners: Developing Deep Mathematical Learning Patterns


For Early Years Practitioners in schools, pre-schools and nurseries who would like to develop their specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics. This may be particularly relevant for those who are new to teaching mathematics in Early Years. 


This will help Early Years practitioners to

  • develop their mathematical subject knowledge of the significance of pattern in supporting children’s’ early mathematical understanding


  • review teaching strategies, resources and mathematical language to maximise deeper learning


  • enhance professional practice through engagement with specialist literature, workshop discussions and gap tasks involving collaborative planning, exploration of activities and in-depth case studies.


As a result of this project participants will increase their confidence and expertise in mathematical pattern, including early algebra. Findings from the project may be shared within Early Years teams and with leaders, to support discussion of current policies and approaches.


2020 dates

  1. Thursday 30th January   1:30pm – 4:30pm

All sessions will take place at Pioneer Teaching School Alliance based at Harrison Primary School, Fareham.



  • All participants are expected to attend all three sessions.
  • Participant need to complete some independent study through gap tasks in their schools between sessions.
  • Participants will also be asked to keep a learning log for their own use and contribute to the national evaluation process, probably through a short online survey after the sessions have finished.


Cost and booking

Free of charge.  Please note that a charge of £100 per participant for non-attendance without prior notice will be applied.
