Verbal Reasoning and Abstract Thinking

The Verbal Reasoning and Abstract Thinking guidance sits as part of the Oral Language Toolkit.

Children’s verbal reasoning skills and abstract thinking skills enable them to demonstrate their oral language comprehension skills which underpin their understanding across learning. This needs to be supported through modelling, commenting and developmentally appropriate questioning.
