Summary: The author believes that Venn diagrams are a useful, yet hugely underused resource, to encourage purposeful talk, reasoning and logical thinking both within mathematics and across the curriculum. Here, she describes ways in which Venn diagrams can be used to add challenge and develop reasoning, discussion and mathematical thinking at Key Stage 2. (Contains 2 figures.) (ERIC)
