White Rose Maths have been delivering 5 key Jigsaw twilights to Secondary schools around the country.
We have combined the ever popular Bar Modelling course with our brand new WRM Schemes: Explored (Secondary) session to create a full day of training.
WRM Schemes: Explored
Many secondary school pupils believe that they “cannot do maths”. Our secondary Scheme of Learning helps you teach for deep and lasting understanding by changing mindsets and building confidence as well as skills. This in-depth course explains the “small step” structure of the course, demonstrating how key concepts are interleaved throughout to strengthen learning and how teaching is supported through the use of key representations, questioning and embedding of reasoning and problem-solving at every stage. We also explore how the curriculum supports the demands of the new OfSTED framework, and the wealth of supporting resources (assessments, IWB files etc.) we provide to support the teaching of the scheme. How to plan form the scheme is also explored, allowing delegates the chance to share their ideas and compare to one of our own exemplar lessons.
An introduction to Bar Modelling
Bar Modelling is a powerful tool for representing problems that is a key component of the teaching for mastery approach heavily utilised in some of the most mathematically successful countries in the world. Building on from concrete representations, this pictorial tool opens up understanding in many curriculum areas including number relationships, all aspects of proportional reasoning and algebra right up to simultaneous equations. This course will also explore how bar modelling can be used to make sense of – and therefore be able to solve – complex worded problems.
