Thinking and talking in the primary classroom

About the Playground of Ideas

The Playground of Ideas is an approach that emphasises the importance of children's thinking and talking together to develop learning. 

It is based on research carried out at the University of Cambridge, the University of Exeter and schools around the UK

We have resources to support children's thinking and talking at all stages of the primary curriculum  and we train teachers to be able to use these resources to support children's learning
