Early Years Magazine - Issue 13number thirteen, counters and die


Editor's Entrée
Our editor offers you some interesting new publications from the DfE, your last reminder to book a place on our free National CPD Conference – Professional Learning Networks: learning better through learning together in Sheffield on 1 December and a reminder to look at the new Primary Magazine for the art of van Gogh, John Venn, and more.

Focus on...Mathematical learning in the role play area
We take another look at Helen Williams’ Teacher Enquiry Funded Project, as described in Issue 4, highlighting and exploring her observations and conclusions for the role play area.

R4U - Research for You
Ian Thompson offers a possible explanation as to why young children sometimes experience difficulties with the ‘terrible teen’ numbers. Come back next month for Ian’s reflection on place value.

As promised last month, we bring you some simple number tracks with suggestions of how you might use them. Also included are some dot and dice ideas to help extend children’s subitizing range.

Case study
This month’s case study comes from the Teacher Learning Academy, part of the General Teaching Council for England. Teaching young children listening skills looks at how a group of children aged 3 to 3½ years responded to a programme to improve their listening skills.

Maths to share - CPD for you and your colleagues
We go back to Teachers TV for our CPD session this month.

Contributors to this issue include Cherri Moseley and Ian Thompson.
