In 6T this week, we considered three questions in our History lessons:
What is the role of government?
Why do we need a government?

Using thinking routines makes the children’s thinking ‘rich’. It encourages a development of learners’ attitudes toward thinking and learning and poses opportunities for different viewpoints and discussion.
