During a Thinking Day a specialist Mind Lab teacher will bring all the games and materials to run classes with your pupils throughout the day. Our classes will give your pupils a taste of our research proven methodology which provides pupils with the thinking skills they need to succeed academically and in life. The Mind Lab curriculum enables children of all abilities to gain in confidence, self awareness, use their multiple intelligences to further develop a love for learning.
The Thinking Day could also include a school wide assembly about thinking and strategy, a thinking wall of puzzles and problems during the lunchtime and a parent pupil game playing evening that night.
