Hsis Early Years - Concepts Count! Extending children's Mathematical Thinking


This session will give you the opportunity to consider:

  • The importance of problem solving and how continuous provision can provide opportunities for children to solve problems
  • Planning systems that support the development of early mathematical skills
  • How children’s interests can be a starting point for mathematical exploration
  • The role of the adult in supporting mathematical thinking


Children’s development of a range of mathematical concepts is rooted firmly in the rich and varied experiences that they encounter. Children need opportunities to revisit and build upon concepts and ideas; they need to encounter problems and be able to apply their own systems and strategies in solving them. During this training day practitioners will gain a greater understanding of how to plan for and sustain opportunity filled provision. They will develop the confidence and skills to be responsive to and supportive of, children’s interests whilst igniting deep levels of mathematical thinking.


Following this session you will be able to:

  • Reflect upon the quality of existing provision and consider how this may be enhanced
  • Consider how children’s mathematical development can be supported through continuous provision
  • Embed problem solving experiences within continuous provision
