Workshop – Saturday 13 November 2010 Thinking Skills

Speaker: Katherine Coleman, recently retired from Combe Bank School

We all want to help children learn. One way to enhance learning is by encouraging children to ask better questions and to be more thoughtful. This can be done by providing challenges and activities that promote questioning, thinking and discussion.

This workshop will be a ‘hands-on’ morning using materials designed to do this and will explore how these ideas and principles can be used by parents and teachers at home and at school.
