This is to be the webpage of the Mapua School Junior Thinking Skills Group!

We are starting up next term with some children from Room
s 1, 2 and 3.

Mrs B is going to be our teacher and we will meet for 1/2 an hour every Monday when the rest of the syndicate is doing singing.

Our aims are to:
  • think creatively
  • use different techniques to analyse and critically examine problems and situations
  • to use all of our skills to problem solve.

    Students will also have weekly thinking tasks to do at home, these will be available on line, at this website. Please indicate on the permission form if you do not have access to the internet at home and I will provide a print out.

    This is an exciting opportunity for your child to extend his/her thinking and to gather great tools to place in their "thinking toolbox" - tools always useful in life!

    Kind regards,
    Rachel Boyd
