Use our captivating poster to prompt thinking skills in your class

Montage of forest and pebble sculpture

Images are very effective at getting children to think creatively as the same picture can be interpreted in many different ways. The following activities encourage children to question what they see and develop their imaginations. It is important that you explain that there are no right or wrong answers – they are free to interpret what they like, how they like. The images on the Poster, ‘Take a picture’ are ideal for kick-starting children’s thinking skills. Encourage the children to chat openly about what they can see, and don’t be afraid to let the noise levels rise as they get their creative juices flowing.
