Effective Transition from EYFS to Year 1 

On this course, EYFS teachers will work with Year 1 teachers to establish where children are on their mathematical pathway and how we can build on this learning into Year 1. There will be a range of practical ideas to support both year groups.

Trainers Pen Portrait

Tara Loughran

Tara has extensive experience in schools for leading improvement and change in mathematics. She has provided high quality training for the St Helens TSA since becoming at teaching school in 2013; she has inspired lots of teachers and support staff to take her ideas back to the classroom with significant impact. Tara represents NW Maths Hub 3 across the North West and sits on the Executive board.

Teachers have commented:

  • Quick wins, easily applied and adapted ideas. Instant impact!!
  • Fun, practical activities, used daily, the children love them!
  • Children challenge each other’s thinking; this is done independently rather than being provoked/promoted by the teacher.
  • A really thought provoking, inspirational session packed with lots of ideas that I will definitely be taking back to school.
  • A thoroughly enjoyable day, she gave activities with twists that will have impact. A great insight into how to adapt activities for different levels and time saving ideas. Tara is truly inspirational!!
  • I now have a ‘deeper’ understanding of how to ensure my children ‘Master’ the mathematics.
  • True quality! This session has improved my own subject knowledge and understanding of mathematical concepts and also given me a better progressional understanding.
