Maths: Everyone Can – Miss Rose is back for video two and looks at the importance of concrete

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 and abilities.

Continuing the story of the remarkable ‘Miss Rose’, our latest CPD package and accompanying resources offer inspiration, guidance and support which will help your staff to use concrete resources in maths. You can access:

  • A video (see below) which offers a humorous and thought-provoking angle on the importance of the concrete stage.
  • A PowerPoint presentation which forms the basis of a CPD session for your staff team.
  • A set of presenter’s notes offering prompts and suggestions for the session.
  • A division worksheet

Together, these  materials aim to enthuse your staff and demonstrate the power of concrete. The package gives a wide variety of development ideas and suggests further activities and avenues to explore.

These CPD materials (which you can download via the links above) are completely free of charge. As always, welcome your feedback on our work – please contact us with your feedback and suggestions.

Make sure you keep an eye out for Miss Rose’s next video, in which she’ll be focusing on more ways to make sure that when it comes to mastering maths, Everyone Can!
