  • Taster Lessons Year 5 Girls (year group at time of event): Thinking Skills - Thursday, 6th February 2020
    6th February 2020
    4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Open to girls going into year 5 from September 2019, in the Maidstone area looking for a grammar school education.  Sessions are designed to give a flavour of lessons at MGGS whilst familiarising girls with our community.  Taster lessons at MGGS are designed so that year 5 girls can pick and choose from a variety of subject specialisms.

This taster lesson covers Thinking Skills.  MGGS is an accredited Advanced Thinking School with the University of Exeter.  Girls will watch an extract from a film whilst thinking of questions it raises to discuss, using the Philosophy for Children method.  These will be voted on and the most popular will form the basis of a discussion which could progress in many directions and cover all sorts of related topics.  This exploration will involve no correct answers but will aid the development of ideas, attitudes and a range of thinking skills.
