We Are In A Thinking School

We are working hard to become independent learners, who embrace all learning opportunities and flourish through learning from our mistakes and moving forward to embed our new skills. 


Metacognition is a huge topical of research in ensuring our children are well balanced individuals, with the best opportunities to develop sound Mental Health and physical wellbeing. 

Research tells us:

Metacognition is "cognition about cognition", "thinking about thinking", "knowing about knowing", becoming "aware of one's awareness" and higher-order thinking skills. The term comes from the root word meta, meaning "beyond", or "on top of". Metacognition can take many forms; it includes knowledge about when and how to use particular strategies for learning or problem-solving. There are generally two components of metacognition: (1) knowledge about cognition and (2) regulation of cognition.

Well Being and Metacognition At Markington Primary School

After researching many studies and projects in Metacognition, we have introduced 'The Thinking Classroom' by Katie Munchester and Shirley Clarke.

The children have thrown themselves into the concept and are enjoying being rewarded as they strive to improve in the 'learning powers.'
