Children’s ability to reflect on their own thinking – metacognition – is now recognised as critical to children becoming resilient and successful learners. This book asks children to involve themselves in key questions about learning and develops their self awareness as self-critical thinkers and learners. Ofsted has observed how children ‘really enjoyed learning’ in a school that used the guide-book.

Hundreds of schools and thousands of children have used the questions and ideas from the ‘Think Like a Learner’ approach and the authors have now turned them into a workbook for children aged 8-12.

The book can be purchased as a single copy, a class pack of 30, or as a bumper pack of 100 and get 10 FREE!

Children say:
“It’s good to be in the challenge zone and out of the comfort zone”.
“We understand that learning is our responsibility and that we have got to take part”.

Teachers say:
“The children are more divergent thinkers”.
“When faced with difficult tasks the children are more prepared to have a go and to take a risk”.
