Code: OTSA/19/96 Developing use of the Bar Model (Cancelled)

In 2013, the NCETM reported: ‘When solving word problems, it is often not the calculation that children can’t do – rather they are not sure which calculation they need to do.’  Based on end of year Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 tests in 2019, this statement is likely to remain the case in many instances.

Consequently, join this ‘hands-on’ workshop to establish how the bar model can be used by pupils to represent their mathematical thinking, as well as understand more about the structure of the maths that needs to be understood in order to answer a question.

Aims will include:

  • To understand the potential of bar model representations as a strategy to help children strengthen their ability to visualise, develop conceptual understanding and solve problems. 
  • To develop knowledge of progression in use of the bar model and the skill of using secure pedagogies, for example, use of practical equipment.


Audience: Maths subject-leaders / Key Stage 1 and 2 teachers, plus Teaching Assistants

Code: OTSA/19/77 Principles of Metacognition

Evidence from the Education Endowment Trust suggests the use of ‘metacognitive strategies’ – which get pupils to think about their own learning - can be worth the equivalent of an additional +7 months’ progress when used well.

This event introduces you to the principles of metacognition, and provides practical advice on how to develop pupils’ metacognitive skills and knowledge in conjunction with specific subject content.

Supporting and developing Newly Qualified Teachers in their first year of teaching is hugely important. Our new, enhanced Primary NQT Training Programme aims to provide teachers with the additional knowledge, confidence and support they need to progress successfully through their introductory stage of teaching.
