Early Years Magazine - Issue 18


Editor's Entrée
The conference season is approaching! Find out about: the ATM and MA conferences; our ITE microsite, launched in the autumn; a play set in a pre-school setting on the evening between a two-day Ofsted inspection… and more!

Focus on...Walking in the footsteps of giants!
In this month’s ‘Focus On’, we look at the world of giants; both human and otherwise! This fascinating area offers limitless opportunities to develop essential concepts such as ‘more’ and ‘less’, measurement, child-led problem-solving and rich opportunities for counting and calculating.

R4U - Research for You
Division...in the early years?
Young children can certainly tell you when something has been shared unfairly, but can they really understand division? Ian Thompson summarises some research on this area.

This month’s game, Incey Wincey Spider, is one of the early years activities offered for trialling by NRICH. Liz Woodham, NRICH Primary Coordinator, has kindly offered the game for this month’s magazine.

Case study

Maths to share - CPD for you and your colleagues
