Enriching early mathematical learning

This book is a rich resource intended to support teachers and teachers in training with their teaching of mathematics in the early years. It comprises twenty activities which can be used as starting points.

For each activity there are suggestions about how children might respond and guidance as to how the children may be further developed as learners.

Support is also given to enable the teacher to embed the learning in a theoretical framework and make links with the National Curriculum.

All of the activities have been tried and tested in school and suggestions are made about the way in which these might be fitted into general classroom topics. There is a strong focus on formative assessment and how this can inform future planning.

Special features include:

  • Very accessible to teachers 
  • Attractive and user friendly format 
  • Detailed support for introducing and extending activities which cover each area of the National Curriculum 
  • Focus on using and applying maths at the early stages of Key Stage 1.
