What is this strategy about?
Metacognition is the ability to critically analyse how you think, and having self-awareness and control of your own thoughts. At each stage of a task, pupils should develop appropriate and helpful thinking strategies.
What are the three phases of metacognition?
The metacognition process consists of planning and development, carrying out a plan and examining how well it went. This can support children to understand the way they learn.
