White Rose Maths have been delivering 5 key Jigsaw twilights to Secondary schools around the country.
We have combined the ever popular WRM Schemes: Explored (Secondary) session Mathematical Talk & Questioning 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.
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.
