Maths Subject Leader Seminar: Leading Whole Improvement Using Bar Modelling


A day specifically designed for maths subject leaders packed full of ideas, hand-on practical support and an opportunity to ask questions and share good practice.


This training will enable you to:


  • Gain a deeper understanding of what bar modelling is and its powerful role in developing every child’s ability to reason mathematically
  • Work through activities showing you how to introduce  or improve the use of bar modelling throughout the whole school from the EYFS to Year 6 and beyond
  • Lead whole school development on how to teach essential calculation and algebra using the bar model
  • See how this approach supports the teaching more complex problem solving (especially supportive in Year 2 and  Year 6 SATs)
  • Instantly improve children’s understanding of fractions (including unit, non-unit, discrete and continuous quantities)

    Thank you so much Karen. I enjoyed the training this morning tremendously and tried out the ideas straight after lunch with my class leading to 20 mins of enthusiastic discussion! Brilliant!

    The children said they really enjoyed it and wanted to do more so I am definitely going to be changing my teaching!’

  • Thank you for showing us HOW to change. So many courses just tell us what isn't working but not how to go about addressing this. Your approaches make so much sense! Thank you.

  • Just to say thank you again for 3 really brilliant talks at SGIS. We're a small school near Basel and we’d be interested in anything you’re doing nearby (Zurich way) so please let us know!
