If we apply the research of Moon (2008) in that critical thinking cannot be taught, this has significant implications in the classroom. This makes it very difficult for practitioners to enhance and embed these skills within children to be critical adults.This suggests that children need ample opportunities to experience a wide range of cultures, experiences, religions and people to begin to develop their ability to think critically. This is why there are elements of critical thinking in the National Curriculum, (DfE, 2013) to develop and encourage critical thinking skills. For example, in history pupils should address and devise questions about similarities and changes over time (DfE, 2013, p. 189). This demonstrates critical thinking, by getting the pupils to reflect on what they have learnt alongside generating critical questions. Pupils may not necessarily be aware, but through skilled questioning pupils can develop a good ability to critically think and analyse.
