I am a maths coordinator teaching year 6 children at a prep school. EYFS need a new more challenging and more interesting scheme than Heinemann. Could anybody suggest a new scheme to look at?

Does it have to be a scheme? What about Numicon http://www.numicon.com/Index.aspx , is this the sort of thing you have in mind?

Hi Andy,
I would look at the new EYFS framework for ideas. The sections on what adults can do and what they can provide show how important it is for the children to learn mathematical concepts through play and exploration in a structured way making use of the indoor and outdoor environment. Appropriate interaction from adults that challenges and extends children's mathematical thinking and vocabulary means that each child's mathematical learning develops at the best rate for them.

Hi Andy, You may want to look at 'Let's visit Numberland'. It is an open, playful and holisitc approach on numeracy, language and soft skills. Scientific research revealed children's progress of at least one year within only ten weeks, both on math skills and language. Yet you can spend as much time in imaginative, emotional and tangible Numberland as needed or wished by the children. Find all information, also an article on the research project, on www.numberland.net or contact me at barbara@numberland.net I would be interested in your opinion. Regards Barbara
