- 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.
