Editor's Entrée
Can you afford to miss out on the latest early years conference news or details of recent additions to the NCETM portal that concern the Early Years Foundation Stage? Find out all the latest in our Editor’s Entrée.

Focus on...
This month we focus on The development of children’s mathematical understanding from 0–6 years. This valuable resource focuses on the development of numbers as labels and for counting by looking at six children who attend a variety of early years settings and are supported in their learning by a range of practitioners.

R4U, Research for You
Find out about a fascinating study from Hungary, looking at inducting children into ways of mathematical working. The study, carried out by Jenni Back from the University of Plymouth, explores the high participation lessons of Hungarian six year olds which encourage pupils to make links between an extraordinary number of different mathematical areas.

This month’s Games section focuses on a new publication, Create & Display: Mathematics, from Scholastic publications. Try out some of their ideas and let us know the results.

Case Study 
Share the ideas and experiences of one school that involved children, staff and pupils in a whole-school effort to make the most of learning mathematics outside.

Maths to share - CPD for you and your colleagues
We round off our focus on the NCETM early years CPD modules this month with a look at the ‘Final Reflections – What have I learned?’ section. Evaluate your progress and find support for planning your next steps.
