In this special two-part CPD Booster, Dr Kathryn Peckham explains how to make a difference to children’s reading and enjoyment, and how to embed the foundations of mathematical thinking in young children.

These sessions are ideal for a reminder course or for staff new to Early Years.

In the Getting Mathematical CPD Booster you will learn:

  • How our capacity to understand symbolic figures and conceptual mathematics is uniquely human
  • How to de-mystify some of the concerns around what maths means in the early years
  • How playing with maths and the experiences we can offer that will make all the difference.
  • What the foundational pillars of mathematical thinking are, that you can easily embed throughout your setting.

In the Learning to Read CPD Booster you will learn:

  • How to look at letters in ways that are meaningful for children
  • How reading is an enriching process of communication, opening up children’s minds and imaginations to fantastical places
  • Some common practices around early introductions to reading and some of the concerns your parents may be having.

Each session runs for 20 minutes and includes multiple handouts and exercises. You’ll get a certificate for 60 minutes of CPD on completion of both sessions.

You get lifetime access to the course and you can watch as many times as you want.
