Thinking

Thinking is about using creative, critical, and metacognitive processes to make sense of information, experiences, and ideas. These processes can be applied to purposes such as developing understanding, making decisions, shaping actions, or constructing knowledge. Intellectual curiosity is at the heart of this competency.

Students who are competent thinkers and problem-solvers actively seek, use, and create knowledge. They reflect on their own learning, draw on personal knowledge and intuitions, ask questions, and challenge the basis of assumptions and perceptions.

This term we will be following an integrated approach to literacy. We have learners with a range of abilities from very emergent to those with increasing independence and confidence.

In our literacy sessions we will use big books and experiential activities to prompt, particularly, our writing. We will use shared stories to develop our knowledge and understanding of elements of writing and reading, oral language and comprehension. We will also use the Storytelling process for some of our sessions.
