Developing Deep Mathematical Learning in Early Years - Language in Early Years The importance of language as an indicator of a child’s educational success has been long established by ongoing language-based projects. This work seeks to build on some of the research around the effective use of language to support practitioners with establishing effective mathematical discourse. This Work Group will focus on the development of mathematical language, identifying best practice in this aspect by promoting a variety in language use and how language structures can be utilised to elicit deeper thinking. Who is it for? School based practitioners leading the planning and provision of mathematics in Early Years (i.e. Nursery and/or Reception), particularly those who are not EYFS specialists What is involved? Three days over the year with gap tasks between them to embed learning. Two days will be face-to-face training and one day will provide the opportunity to work with colleagues in other settings. Dates/expectations: Participants in this Work Group will be expected to attend: Session 1 Thursday 16th November 2017 Session 2 Wednesday 7th February 2018 Session 3 Wednesday 2nd May 2018 Participants in this Work Group will be expected to contribute in facilitated discussions, complete work group gap tasks and presentations.
