Abstract

This article looks at a specific intervention carried out with forty young children over the course of an academic year. The aim of the intervention was to give opportunities for creative thinking, with the ultimate goal of promoting learning free from preconceptions and judgements of ability. The intervention resulted in learning through co-agency, opportunities for the teacher to deepen their understanding of the pupils and their learning and, ultimately, it empowered pupils to become better learners.
