thinking skills 10min exercises KS2

Overall rating 4 out of 54.3 (264 ratings)

A powerpoint containing 14 literacy and 14 numeracy questions, aimed at encouraging children to think creatively and logically. Literacy Q example: ‘how would you describe an elephant to someone who has never seen one before?’. All questions have colourful backgrounds to stimulate the children’s More…thoughts. I made this for a Year 5 class, but it could be equally well applied to all KS2. I’m an overworked GTP student so please leave any feedback you can, it will help me with my evidence!

Some brilliant prompts for getting children thinking creatively. A great starting point for both speaking & listening and writing. Thanks

I love this was so effective and a really interesting way to stimulate the children's imaginations. The mix of oral/written tasks was especially appropriate for reluctant writers. Thank you!!
