Using critical thinking skills in Year 4
Year 4 used a critical thinking skills activity called 'Flat chat' in literacy - eveyone loved contributing!
On Wednesday 15th January 4JLRS Literacy group did a 'Flat Chat activity' during their Literacy lesson on 'How do you know the monster is a bad character?' and 'How do you know the Main Character is a good character?' The children worked in groups and noted down nouns, adjectives, verbs and descriptive language. They then swapped tables every 2 minutes and added new language features to another groups sheet. The children enjoyed this activity and found it challenging to add new information
