  • What's new

Things to ask instead of ‘Did you have a good day?’


There’s only a few weeks till the new term begins and when they’re asked ‘How did your day go?’ it can be difficult for children to open up or even remember what happened in their day. Why not try these power questions instead?

  • What did you learn that you didn’t know yesterday?
  • Who did you sit next to at lunch?
  • What made you laugh?
  • What made your teacher smile?
  • Who were you kind to?
  • What was the hardest rule to follow?
  • Who did you help?
  • If you could solve one problem at school, what would it be?
  • What made you feel proud?
  • What was difficult for you?
  • Who do you want to be friends with but aren’t yet?
  • What did you do that made you feel brave?
  • If you were the teacher tomorrow, what would you do?
