Currently, Let’s Think is being used in over 400 schools in the UK as well as a growing number of internationally schools worldwide. At BIS, we having been using LTiE lessons with students from years 5 to 9 since January 2017. Now Year 3 and 4 teachers are trained to use it in their classrooms too.
Here is what some of our teachers and students say about LTiE :
“Students are really developing as critical, reflective learners who understand the importance of social construction when analysing and discussing texts.” Mr Gavin Donnelly, Head of English, BIS Secondary
“It stretches my children’s thinking and makes them think in different ways.” Mike Martin, Head of Year 3
“The pedagogy of LTIE is transferable across the entire curriculum. It has to be difficult for children to learn.” Mr John Handscombe, Year 6 Class Teacher and Maths Co-ordinator
“They were encouraged to explore, verbalise, adapt and challenge their own thinking.” Ms Paula Phipps, Year 3 Teacher
“I find it more advanced than other lessons. It gets me thinking more.” Avaan, Year 5 Student
“The questions are sometimes tricky so it can be quite challenging but it is fun at the same time.” Ngoc, Year 6 Student
“The poem made me think a lot about the dark.” Nikita, Year 3 Student
Talk to your child about his or her Let’s Think in English lessons. I am sure they will tell you how enjoyable they are and how their understanding of what they have read is improving. Over time, we are confident LTiE will also boost their writing skills.
