What is a Thunk?
'A Thunk is a beguilingly simple-looking question about everyday things that stops you in your tracks and helps you start looking at the world in a whole new light. At the same time it encourages you to engage in verbal fisticuffs with the people sitting next to you and, if used properly, always leads to severe brain ache.' (The Little Book of Thunks by Ian Gilbert).
Why have we introduced Thunks in school?
They develop a whole range of skills including: thinking, listening, talking, team working, debating, analysing, persuading, to name but a few. Most importantly a Thunk encourages pupils to 'look deeper and question harder'.
So why not carry on the discussions at home. See Facebook page for the latest Thunk.
