• connect their own and others’ ideas and
  experiences in inventive ways
• question their own and others’
• try out alternatives or new solutions and

       Creative thinkers
The key concept of creativity emphasises
the need for pupils to use their existing
knowledge of language in an imaginative
way to communicate a wide range of ideas
and opinions. It requires creative thinkers
who can explore possibilities of adapting
and re-using language for new purposes
and in new contexts and who can try out
alternatives or find new solutions.
