"What was your key take away from this event?"

 

  • The power of the right question in deepening and extending children's thinking.

  • Feeling more confidence in my approaches.

  • Asking children questions using a factual, procedural, conceptual and metacognitive approach.

  • Understand how to reframe questions/tasks to make them more conceptual in nature.

  • Different types of questioning, using the same activity or stimulus but guiding the children in different ways through questioning. Also the reading and links that were provided to read after the session were very useful

  • How in depth mathematical understanding must be embedded throughout primary school and how the right type of question at the right time is absolutely vital.

  • Making the learning experiences more inquiry based
