Gwladys Street Primary and Nursery School (Early Years Study)

Using Teach Active to raise pupil engagement and promote independence in Maths in EYFS.
1. Scenario

Some children in EYFS had low confidence in their mathematical ability and were reluctant to work independently during their maths activities.

2. Actions taken

Our Maths co-ordinator invited Jon Smedley into school to deliver CPD training on Teach Active. Teach Active is now used across the school and is built into our weekly planning.

3. Impact on attitudes

Children are excited, enthusiastic and motivated to take part in Teach Active activities. This, in turn has impacted on children's attitudes towards mathematical learning in all areas of the EYFS curriculum.

4. Impact on attainment

We have found that children who were reluctant to attempt mathematical activities without adult support are now much more confident to try new tasks independently. Children have taken their new found enthusiasm and are now applying it throughout continuous provision.
