Let’s Think in English primary programme consists of a suite of high-interest lessons; they are largely oral, based on reading, open-ended questioning and structured group discussion which increases pupils’ reasoning skills and metacognition. This makes pupils more aware of their thinking processes and how they think most effectively.
Lessons develop pupils’ ability to provide reasoned justifications for their views, predict, summarise and draw inferences when reading texts. Furthermore, through LTE, pupils identify how language, structure and presentation contribute to meaning, examine authors’ choice of language and other stylistic features and consider the purpose of the text. Pupils develop their higher-order reading skills (and subsequently writing) through group discussion and sharing their views.
