Supporting Effective Transition from Reception to Year 1


Many schools are adopting a teaching for mastery approach in mathematics. The starting point for a school is usually Year 1 and then thought is given as to how the approach is built across KS1 and KS2. Schools naturally want to consider the teaching of mathematics in Reception and how the transition to Year 1 can best support children’s learning.
The Work Groups in this project will start by exploring best practice in Early Years and how the principles might build a secure foundation in mathematics for transition into a teaching for mastery approach in Year 1. It will consider the curriculum – what children need to know and understand; approaches to planning and the inclusion of all children; and appropriate resources and contexts for effective learning.

  • Please note, this Work Group is more suitable for schools that have already engaged with the Teaching for Mastery programme, or who are currently part of the programme as it will build on aspects of the 5 principles.
