In Year 7 Learning to Learn, students have been learning about the six different ‘Thinking Hats’ that they will need to use in their studies to enhance meta-cognitive skills. Then the students design their own hats in groups. Each colour represents a cognitive skill, for example, yellow-represents positive and optimistic; neutral (white)-represents only looking at facts and figures; black-represents serious and sensible, cautious and careful; red-represents anger, emotions and negative stimuli; green-represents creative aspect and new ideas; blue-represents organised, cool and collected.
