Higher Order Thinking

Over the course of the year 6C have been learning using Higher Order Thinking and Independent Learning strategies. These tools help us learn to think outside the box and to develop our creativity and independence. These activities include using Six Hats, Thinkers Keys, Blooms Taxonomy, Multiple Intelligences, Reflection cards and are supported by using the Smartboard. We regularly use graphic organisers to develop our thinking. Things like lotus diagrams, x-charts and y-charts are all used to support our learning.
