Year 6 have been exploring ways to stretch their minds, as they continue to explore learning and strategies that can help. They have discovered mind maps.
Created by Tony Buzan, mind maps are a system of planning that saves time and helps with planning, concentrating, remembering, note-taking, revising and unlocking our imaginations.
The children explored some of the changes the brain goes through at various stages of life, through talks and live demonstrations. They then used their mind mapping skills to summarise this information, using paper and colours.
Below are some examples of mind maps. The wavy, coloured lines, images and keywords help our brains to remember things. Can you tell what stories they are mapping?
