White Rose Maths have been delivering 5 key Jigsaw twilights to Primary schools around the country.
We have combined three of our popular Jigsaw sessions with a new session Understanding Fluency to create two full days of training.
We are pleased to offer you the option of booking two full days, at a reduced cost of £286.20 + VAT and ticket booking fee.
Day 1 – Tuesday 8th October 2019
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.
Mathematical Talk & 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 modelling and 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.

Day 2 – Wednesday 9th October 2019
Reasoning and problem solving skills are high on the agenda in schools but it is important to not forget about the basics!
Whilst conceptual knowledge is crucial, often the biggest gaps in attainment are held in a lack of knowledge of basic facts. This course takes a look at the importance of flexibility and how this can help close the gap between our higher and lower attaining children. With the upcoming times table tests in year 4, the course looks at how we can support our children to become fluent and possess a deeper understanding in their multiplication knowledge.
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.
