White Rose Maths have been delivering 5 key Jigsaw twilights to Secondary schools around the country.

We have combined three of our popular Jigsaw sessions with our brand new WRM Schemes: Explored (Secondary) course to create two full days of training.



Day 1 - Wednesday 10 July 2019


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..


The day is suitable for:

Secondary Teachers
Maths Leaders
Heads of Department


Day 2 - Thursday 11 July 2019


CPA


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.


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.


The day is suitable for:

Secondary Teachers
Maths Leaders
Heads of Department
