Reasoning skills are an essential part of a child's educational development. They are fundamental to a child's ability to understand, assimilate and process new information and ideas and they enable her/him to think creatively and to make reasoned judgements.
At Clifton High School we recognise the importance of children being able to apply their knowledge to solve problems logically and reasoning activities form part of our curriculum. Children are introduced to and participate in non-verbal and verbal reasoning activities that develop their ability to make sense of patterns of words and shapes, to recognise differences, analogies and sequences and to solve complex problems.
Through a rich variety of activities the children develop their reasoning abilities and are well prepared to meet the challenge of scholarship examination reasoning papers.
