Our Highland and Moray colleagues met today for a morning session focusing on Numeracy and an afternoon session based on Literacy as part of Phase 2 of their PGDE (DLITE) programme of study.

Seonaid Cooke, Marybank Primary School, delivered a practical session on Numeracy in Early and First levels in school for the students who have begun their early stages placement.

The aims for today’s session:
● Understand the progression through the stages of development from
Early to First levels
● To develop understanding of the different areas of knowledge from Early
to First levels
● To give ideas in planning learning experiences to help a child move on to
the next stage of development in both strategy and knowledge
