Thinking Skills Extension Activity

Sixteen children from year 3 to year 6 took part in an extension activity this afternoon with Mrs Granby. They worked in groups to solve two problems. One was about a man who had been kidnapped and was being held in a house they had to identify from clues and the other problem was a secret code sent by an agent that they had to decipher. The older children led the groups and all the children contributed well and didn't give up although the code was very difficult to break. The children's comments were very positive at the end of the afternoon:

"I thought this was pretty hard but great! I would love to do it again because it was a different skill from what we usually learn."

"I really enjoyed the workshop today. It was fun. I enjoyed working as a group. It was very mind-twisting!"

"I enjoyed today. My favourite activity was the Shapes Puzzle at the end because it was challenging."
