Promoting Number and Mathematical Development in Nursery through Staff Development.
This project, an example of teacher action research awarded an SCRE Practitioner Award in 2002, considers a program for nursery staff development based around the number and mathematical strands contained in the Knowledge and Understanding section of "A Curriculum Framework for Children 3 to 5". This work was part of the Nursery's Development Plan. It involved looking at resources, reflection upon current practice, staff development work, and consideration of what children were learning in the Nursery. Staff also wanted to apply the findings of other researchers to their practice and took particular inspiration from two early education support documents from the Scottish Consultative Council on the Curriculum (now Learning and Teaching Scotland): (1) "Numeracy Counts"; and (2)"Numeracy in the Early Years: What the Research Tells Us".
