White Rose Maths have been delivering 5 key Jigsaw twilights to Secondary schools around the country.
We have combined three of the courses with our WRM Schemes: Explored (Secondary) session to create 2 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.
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 from the scheme is also explored, allowing delegates the chance to share their ideas and compare to one of our own exemplar lessons.
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 across all areas of the curriculum, from simple number operations up to complex procedures like completing the square. Building on the concrete, we consider how we can make connections between concrete, pictorial and abstract ideas so pupils can truly master concepts, building on strong foundations.
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.
Reasoning & Problem Solving
Reasoning and problem solving have been high on the agenda since the most recent reform of GCSE in 2017. This very practical course examines how to develop these skills over the five years of secondary school, looking at the journey in reasoning from giving explanations through to developing formal proof, and how to support students at all levels of attainment to access and succeed in high-value problem solving questions. You will leave the session with ideas and strategies to implement from the very next day.
