Riverside Regeneration - Higher Order Thinking Skills
The activities in this section are based on the theme of Riverside Regeneration.
Currently there are four activities one for each of the subjects: Maths, Science, Geography and Design and Technology. While the activities can be used by individual pupils, they have been written to promote Higher Order Thinking Skills for pupils at Key Stages 3 and 4 and this is best achieved with teacher intervention and collaborative work. Discussion of the activities should be encouraged along with time to reflect on the thinking skills involved e.g. what did the pupils actually do, what strategies did they use to solve the problems, were these strategies effective?
