De Bono's Thinking Hats

Reflection On Inquiry Presentation

Introduce your group, your group’s topic. Describe your research and presentation

Our groups is called the Amazing ‘Reasons’ group. We are a group of seven people and our beautiful group Members are  Caprice, Taylor, Harmony Danisha, Willy, Tannislous and Niko. Our group answer questions like why did the war start and how did it start. Our research programme show all of the reasons why it started and how it doesn't affect yourself but other people around you. We introduce a lot of things relating on the key word ‘WHY’. Another key word we used a lot is the key word ‘How’. We answer these questions by reaching and reading different types of books and websites. We used different types of resources like google presentation, Powtoon and other websites to set out our interesting answers about the question.

Explain what you need to improve on

We have not got many things to improve on but the number one thing we need to work on is volume. We came off with a loud star it was alright going to the end but it was getting a tiny bit softer. I think that we probably got nervous and I think next time we just have to build up our self confidence skills.

Explain what you learned from other groups

We have learnt a lot of interesting facts from other groups. The Groups were Weapons One, Weapons two, places, people and of course our group the reasons group. One of the facts I learnt from the weapons one group that the first ever tank that was invented was called ‘the little willie’. It goes 1 mile per hour and it could fit 9 or 10 people in it. In the people group a fact that I heard was that Hitler hated the jewish because they are the larger known german Ethnic.
