Let's Talk


Let's Talk - Déanaimid Comhrá


Maths Talk is a powerful tool to support teaching and learning in the primary classroom. The 'Let's Talk' framework has been developed by the PDST Primary STEM team, to support teachers in advancing the mathematical thinking of their pupils through the lens of Maths Talk. This framework is based on the instructional framework, which can be found at the beginning of the PDST mathematics manuals. These manuals are free to download here.


This framework will support and develop the pupils' mathematical thinking, by promoting rich, meaningful talk and discussion about their ideas and strategies. It is not necessary for teachers to move through the segments in a cyclical fashion. Teachers can move from segment to segment through the central 'Let's Talk' hub, to scaffold meaningful discussion. Each segment can be revisited several times throughout the process. Sample questions have been provided below to support teachers, while using the 'Let's Talk' Framework. A pdf of the framework can be downloaded here.
