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…
Concrete – Pictorial – Abstract
Concrete manipulatives are fundamental to the powerful Concrete-Pictorial- Abstract (CPA) approach and are a key resource in developing a deep understanding of maths for pupils of all ages. This hands-on course will look at how concrete resources can be used across the curriculum to introduce a topic and create firm foundations of understanding. Building on the concrete, we will look at the transition into pictorial and abstract focusing on how and why abstract methods work. In this session, we will look at the versatility of resources and how a few key resources can support learning across the curriculum.
