SPRING 2023 – Talk for Writing in Maths

For primary teachers and members of primary management teams.

What the training will cover

This ground-breaking two-session course is focused on how applying the Talk for Writing approach to maths helps children to engage successfully in talking their way to understanding in maths, so that they can confidently apply the mathematical skills they are learning.

The imitation, innovation, independent application process that underpins Talk for Writing, has been found to enhance children’s learning in all subject areas. It not only supports retention of key content, alongside the practical application of whatever skills have been learnt, but it also enables children to express their learning coherently.

The sessions will focus on how understanding fractions is progressively developed from Year 2 to Year 6 and show how work in Reception and Year 1 creates the necessary foundation for the learning.

The course will feature examples from maths specialists in leading Talk for Writing Training Centre schools, Briar Hill in Northampton and St Matthew’s in Birmingham. Both schools achieve outstanding results in their maths SATs.
