Maths resources from previous 'Developing Maths Leaders across Bristol' courses.
CPD for early mathematics
As we seek to understand more about children’s thinking by being co-partners, discovering with them, we are also enticed into developing our knowledge of the world and understanding how mathematical relationships impinge on almost every daily occurrence. Paley (2007) asserted in her reflections that the key is curiosity, not answers that we model, showing children our desire to also uncover the mysteries of the world. As we seek to learn more about a child, we demonstrate the acts of observing, listening, questioning and wondering.
The aims of the maths leaders courses are:
- To develop Early Years mathematics leaders working in under five settings.
- To develop staff as leaders of mathematics in their settings.
- To extend teachers'/practitioners' knowledge about how young children learn mathematics.
- To give strategies and opportunities to plan open ways for children to think mathematically.
- To support teachers in their understanding of how to support children's own mathematics.
- To embrace the latest research and apply this effectively in the practitioners' settings.
Mathematics teaching can be ‘opened up’ through hands-on resources, maths games and appealing mathematical graphics. A culture of mathematical enquiry can be built through embracing the latest research alongside the deployment of a range of tools, all of which are shared in our CPD programmes.
