Your neighbour is digging a deep hole in his garden late at night.

Think of as many reasons as you can to explain this behaviour. Is there more future or past? A “Thunk” and a “Thinkers Key” The learning Experience(s): Write down/draw/explain what “good” looks like for this learning experience: What do I now “know”? How can I show what I “know”? What should I be able to do? What do I have to do to make my learning better in this area? What actions will I take? e.g. what will I do differently? What skills am I working on?
