White Rose Maths have been delivering 5 key Jigsaw twilights to primary schools 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.
Concrete – Pictorial – Abstract Methods
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 focus on how concrete resources can be used to develop children’s conceptual understanding of place value and the four operations. Building on the concrete, we consider how we can make connections between concrete, pictorial and abstract ideas so children can truly master concepts, building on strong foundations.
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.
