Let's Explore the Enquiring Mind in KS1

Using Wow Ideas to Build Knowledge & Understanding

Description

This session will explore ways that teachers can stretch children’s thinking, offering them challenges that fire their imagination and help to develop their problem-solving skills.

In today’s rapidly changing world, children need to be able to do much more than repeat a list of facts. Supporting children in developing thinking, rather than just learning facts and skills ensures that children are taught the skills that they will need in later life. They need to be critical thinkers who can make sense of information, make inferences, analyse, contrast and compare. Providing opportunities for children to question, share ideas, predict and hypothesise is critical for cognitive development and allows children to learn how to learn.

Benefits 

  • Deepen understanding around the importance of developing thinking skills
  • Consider how these skills impact on high quality teaching and learning
  • Explore resources that promote and inspire curiosity
