Year One Network
The focus of the year 1 network this year was on Maths. The network investigated the different strategies used within our schools and how Maths skills and knowledge develop throughout Year 1. Network members shared ideas and resources, involving outside experts, in order to develop their mathematical skills and knowledge.
The network also looked at children’s independent learning skills and how to encourage them. By looking at areas such as Forest Schools and Growth Mindset, network members reflected on their own practice and personal next steps.
As always the opportunity to talk to and observe other Year 1 teachers and classrooms offered valuable professional development opportunities that has impacted on the robustness and refinement of teaching and learning in Year 1.
