On Friday 27th September, the Sixth Form students participated in an afternoon of team building activities. The students experienced a number of activities which encouraged them to plan, communicate, work together and stay motivated in a fun and energetic way. The emphasis was on the students to take ownership of their learning, using critical thinking to develop ideas on how to solve the challenges and build their resilience, rather than just giving up if they couldn’t complete a challenge. Their social skills were enhanced as they learnt to communicate with members of their tutor group on plans and solutions, as well as evaluating their own performance after each activity. The development of these skills will be an asset to the students both during their A Levels and in the wider world.
