White Rose Maths have been delivering 5 key Jigsaw twilights to primary schools around the country.
By popular demand we have combined two Primary courses together to create an extended morning and afternoon version available for full day training.
An introduction to 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.
Reasoning and Problem Solving
Reasoning and Problem Solving are two of the key aims of the National Curriculum. In this course, we focus on how to develop reasoning for all students by using stem sentences and concrete and pictorial models to support explanations. We examine why some students struggle with problem solving, and how we can overcome these issues through the use of goal-free problems and enabling prompts. Using practical examples, we investigate how to support and challenge all learners within problem solving, giving delegates a variety of activities to take back to the classroom.
