Science, Questioning and Sustained Shared Thinking

In today's rapidly changing world children need to do much more than just learn facts. Supporting children in thinking, rather than just learning facts and skills ensures that children are taught the skills they will need later in life. They need to be critical thinkers who can make sense of information, make inferences, analyse, contrast and compare. Providing opportunities for children to question, share ideas, predict and hypothesise is critical for cognitive development and allows children to learn how to learn. 




We use the science museum model of questioning when working with our children in playful investigation.
