Invitational Thinking Skills group

02 December 2016

We have started our invitational Thinking Skills groups for girls in Years 7-9. This is a ‘stretch and challenge’ group, which aims to encourage girls to think independently and creatively.

Over the last two weeks, girls in Years 7 & 8 have been tackling questions such as ‘Are ‘being taught’ and ‘learning’ the same thing?,  working out logic problems, and finding ‘antigrams’, the first stage of which was to decipher the meaning of antigram!

An anagram is a word or phrase spelled by rearranging the letters of another word or phrase. An antigram is an anagram of a word which means something different, in fact almost the opposite to the original. For example, SILENT  = LISTEN.

If you would like to have a go, the words we used are:

1. United
2. Astronomers
3. Honestly
4. Violence
5. Forty five
6. Restful
