How to Challenge & Extend Thinking in Y1 Workshop Summer $55.00

How to Challenge & Extend Thinking in Y1

Course description

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.

This workshop will explore ways that teachers in Y1 can stretch children’s thinking, offering them challenges that fire their imagination and help to develop their problem-solving skills.

Benefits

  • Deepen understand around the importance of developing thinking skills and how this impacts on high quality teaching and learning
  • Explore resources that promote and inspire curiosity
