For the next two weeks we will be integrating some exciting, practical problem solving time into our curriculum. During these sessions the children will be guided to solve a variety of problems in mixed age groups from Reception to Year 6. The problems will be designed to stretch children’s thinking skills and and encourage leadership and cooperation.
Children learn best when they are having fun and that is exactly what we intend these sessions to bring. Teachers will be guiding the groups to ensure that all ideas are listened to and lateral thinking, persisting in the face of setbacks, embracing challenge and supporting each other will be strongly encouraged. However, when it comes to the problem we will not be guiding them to a particular solution – that will be up to the children!
The sessions will each have a different focus e.g. communication, construction etc. Check our Facebook page for more details on the specific challenges and to see how the children get on!
