    Hi. I have a lesson observation coming up and I would like mine to be during my Maths lesson. As a school we have recently introduced White Rose Maths as a way of teaching. I teach Year 1, mainly EAL, LA students. Does anyone have any wonderful lesson ideas/plans/advice to share please? I am still learning this way of teaching, but I do very much like it.

    What objective do you want to teach ?

    Without knowing which areas of the curriculum you still need to cover, the ability of your class, etc no one can suggest a lesson!!

    White rose is big on practical resources, pictorial representations, discussion. Try to include these in whatever you do, I would say.

    I would agree with this - have some continuous provision that reflects the objective too eg if doing number bonds to 10/20 you could have number cards and towers of cubes with white boards for them to find different combinations . Similarly , numbered skittles outside can be used for the same thing (choose two which add to make 10/20) . Plus, even if you have LA , you can still have some reasoning activities to stretch them - EAL children can access this with support to verbalise answers !

    Whatever you choose to focus on, ensure the aims of the curriculum are a key part of the lesson ... reasoning is a biggy!
