Re-connecting with Maths Seminar Leeds

Engaging practitioners and parents in children’s mathematical development

Date: 25 June 2015 Location: Leeds

Regional Practical Seminar
Leeds 25th June 2015

'Don't worry it's okay to be no good at Maths...because I was no good at it either.'

The perception that being bad at maths is 'OK' is a myth which this set of seminars aims to dispel. This phrase may be familiar to many of us from our own childhood as an expression used to comfort a child when they are frustrated by numbers, problem solving and day to day activities.

Maths is important.  The findings of the recent All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for mathematics highlighted the growing gap in the quality of the delivery of the mathematical area of learning in the EYFS. It highlighted the need to build the workforce's confidence, understanding and enthusiasm in this area and in turn, their capacity to engage with parents and impact on the home learning environment.  Mathematical  development, like all areas of learning in the EYFS, needs to be well thought through and developed  through reflective practice in order to be effective and meet the needs of all children.

The day will begin by looking at what needs to be done and then delve into good practice case studies which explain how this might be achieved.

Although there are some concerns about the early years maths curriculum, the pivotal change needs to be in the attitudes, confidence and understanding of maths by those closest to the child.
