Mark Making Matters is the title of a new publication from the DCSF. The aim of the booklet is to illustrate that very young children who are given rich opportunities to explore making marks within an encouraging emotional environment will become confident and competent communicators, both orally and on paper, in all six areas of learning and development.

Early mark making in mathematics is rarely given the same high profile as early writing. Recommendation 4 of the Williams Review asked ‘that the DCSF commissions a set of materials on mathematical mark making and children’s mathematical development which can be used to support early years practitioners’ CPD’.

This booklet contains case studies and explores children’s mathematical graphics. There will be further guidance to support practitioners in response to the Williams Review in the coming months.

Aimed at the Early Years practitioner, download your copy from teachernet today.
