Early Years Magazine - Issue 24Shoe box monster saying hello


Editor's Entrée
Find out about the latest early years news and keep up on the proposed changes to the Early Years Foundation Stage.

Focus on...
On 21 November it is ‘World Hello Day’, providing the subject for our ‘Focus on…’ this month. Read how you could join in this international initiative in a meaningful way – and engage the children in some mathematics too!

R4U, Research for You
Have you ever considered the ‘nature or nurture’ debate with regard to mathematical ability? Do you believe mathematical skills really are inherent in some children, more so than in others? This issue’s research, funded by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, explores this very question.

Meet Henry, the pattern-eating monster from one foundation key stage setting. Why not make one for the children you work with, and feed him their creative number and shape patterns?

Case Study 
This month we look at the work going on at Throston Primary School in Hartlepool, one of Ofsted’s ‘Good Practice in Early Years and Childcare’ examples. Find out how they structure their Foundation Stage Village to encourage all learners to maximise progress.

Maths to share - CPD for you and your colleagues
This month we explore ways in which we can involve parents in early years mathematics and find out about one local authority’s success with maths circuits.
