  • How to find out facts to prepare for a special challenge
  • How to learn and practise skills for a special challenge
  • How to record how well we are learning
  • How to use what we have learned to create our own special challenge
  • How to wake up our brain
  • How to look after our brain
  • How to design a classroom for learning 

ENTRY POINT

For our entry point we made our own play dough so that we could create sculptures of our brains. We watched a video that told us about the section of our brain which holds our memories. Once we had made our play dough brains we added some of our favourite memories to them.
