Description This day will examine how young children in the Foundation Stage learn to count and build their understanding of number. There is a big difference between reciting numbers and touch counting and this day will look at both and show how one can lead successfully to the other. All children develop at different rates and we need to provide a curriculum that is suitable for them all. The day will have practical activities which are firmly based on research and there will be ideas for use in school the next day!

Details This course will be delivered by Janet Rees

Janet is a freelance education consultant who has worked with children and adults throughout the Foundation and Primary stages. She has been a teacher and headteacher of both mainstream and special schools. She holds very strong beliefs about how young children learn, and this is reflected not only through her work but also through her numerous publications. Children (and adults!) learn best when they are actively involved in their own learning. Many children are asked to record their mathematics before they have developed a real understanding of the concepts involved. Her work allows children to develop understanding as well as the thinking involved in decision making.
