Early Years Magazine - Issue 25


Editor's Entrée
We bring you a ‘potted’ version of the latest early years news and national consultations, along with some resource gems we’ve found.

Focus on...
We take a journey to ‘Numberland’, a playful mathematics concept born from a research project in Germany. Barbara Schindelhauer shares her ideas and describes how, during the research, she found that: "Within only ten weeks, children of all backgrounds joining a Numberland project gained the knowledge of one entire year."

R4U, Research for You
We explore the Government’s recently published document, Supporting Families in the Foundation Years.

This month, we look at a range of ideas for exploring 2D shapes with young children. Dig out those matchsticks and let their creative mathematical juices flow!

Case Study 
The mathematics team at Dacre Braithwaite CE Primary School in North Yorkshire shares how they ensure that working in mixed-age classes in a small rural school works effectively for all pupils.

Maths to share - CPD for you and your colleagues
This month, our CPD section looks at Foundation Stage data. We explore the statutory requirements and the data available nationally before considering how this might be used in individual schools and settings.
