Thank you to everyone who attended and contributed to Monday's INSET. It is great to see and hear about the variety of strategies being trialled already. Please do add comments to this post about what you have been doing in the classroom and share your experiences so we can all learn from each other.
Resources: There is now a Metacognition folder on the K Drive - within the Teaching and Learning folder. I've added some of the resources used in the INSET sessions including a power point that Jane has put together from the INSET she has recently attended. I would like us to build up a bank of examples and resources which we can all utilise so, please upload your worksheets, power points etc too.
