Counting and Early Number: Teaching for Conceptual Understanding.

Aimed at: Early Years Leads and Practitioners

A chance to explore and unpick the subject knowledge needed to enable true number sense in all children alongside what this looks like in practice. We will cover counting - oral (nominal/ordinal), object counting, cardinality, making connections, subsitising and unitising. Pulling all these together to develop strong number sense routines for our children. We will also consider the research around early number and how this can help us develop our practice.
