I am a Research Assistant at the University of Sheffield working on an intervention programme called 'The ONE' project, which is being delivered in collaboration with the University of Oxford. The ONE project focuses on training early years practitioners to engage children in play-based activities that support maths skills. The intervention aims to examine the benefits of developing cognitive skills, called executive functions, within the context of mathematics development.
