Every early year’s setting should look to creating an environment that fosters children’s mathematical thinking, working, collaborating and independence.

A child’s numeracy experience is enriched by their peers, the adults and the rich environment around them. A numeracy rich environment emphasises the importance of using materials and interactions which facilitate numeracy and mathematical opportunities. These opportunities should be relevant, interesting and challenging. Children learn as they explore, interact and have meaningful discussion about maths.

We should share the joy of mathematics by modelling behaviours of mathematicians. Think aloud about mathematics as you wonder “why?”, question “what if?”, and ask “why not always?”. Children will then ask those same questions as they explore the math all around them!

Delegates will

• Discuss the importance of giving numeracy a high status.
• Explore a wide range of ideas and resources to develop mathematical thinking and language.
• Consider how to create spaces that are well equipped with resources that enhance children’s numeracy skills.
• Create environments where numeracy experiences are in context e.g., snack, baking, money, pattern and consider how to adapt them into practice
