We Are Problem Solvers!

In the KS2 assembly today we talked about being independent problem solvers.

We watched this video about an amazing, problem solving crow…

I asked the children what they do when they are stuck on a challenge in class.  It is OK to ask an adult or your partner for help but neither of those solutions really help us become independent, confident problem solvers.

Children told me they…

  • look back at the Lesson Objective and Steps to Success
  • look back at the screen, flipchart or whiteboard
  • look at the Working Wall
  • look at and use the resources at their tables
  • just persevere and try again a different way

I thought these were great answers.  Can you leave a comment below with any other top tips or an example of a time you were stuck and what helped you then?
