Critical Thinking

In Years 5 and 6 Critical Thinking is a weekly lesson where children are able to explore many different topics with a member of senior staff at the school.

In Year 5 the children look at puzzles, verbal reasoning, non-verbal reasoning and different problem solving activities. Year 6 use their lessons to reinforce work covered in Year 5 and then discuss different mind sets, philosophy and engage in further problem solving activities. These times also act as an opportunity for the children to develop their social skills as they discuss opinionated matters.
