Bar Modelling and Mathematical Talk & Questioning (Newcastle)

Until now, White Rose Maths has been delivering 5 key Jigsaw Twilights up, down and around the UK.

By popular demand we have combined two Primary courses together to create an extended morning and afternoon version available for full day training.

The morning session delivers content to make you consider…

Bar Modelling

Bar Modelling is a cornerstone to the teaching for mastery approach, and is of course associated with some of the leading practice and results in the world. This course will introduce staff to the basic principles of bar modelling, explore how it can represent a variety of topics and use it to make sense of tricky, worded problems.

The afternoon session delivers… 

Mathematical Talk and Questioning

Have you ever asked students to talk about their learning then found they quickly go off task? Getting students talking about maths can be difficult but it is an essential part of embedding learning.  This session will help teachers put structures and routines in place in their classroom so that meaningful talk can take place.  In addition, this course looks at how to enhance a teacher’s questioning skills and how to plan questions that challenge students and deepen their understanding.  The session is practical, thought-provoking and equip teachers to put what they learn into practice the very next day.

The day is suitable for:


Lower KS2

Upper KS2

Lower KS3
