This 2 hour evening session aims to highlight the use of open-ended questions in supporting children to problem solve, develop independent thought and think critically about what they are doing


What is more powerful in early years than asking an open-ended question of a child…‘tell me about…?’ the possibilities of the response we may receive are endless

During this session, we will explore how open-ended questions encourage independent thinking and guide children towards finding their own discovery of truth. We shall explore the principles of open-ended questioning, what are open-ended questions and chat about top tips for using them to the best affect.

This course uses video clips, group activities, written materials and interactive discussions to support learning.
