Skills Academy – Autumn 1

This half term we have joined our new skills academy clubs – we have had lots of fun learning new skills and developing existing skills. We have also been making friends in other classes along the way.

Science Club

Science club has been lots of fun this half term. The children have been developing their investigation skills. They have been creating and exploring different materials and even made a mini-explosion. The children are developing their co-operation skills by working in groups and taking on different roles.


Osmaan and Rizwaan are having a great time making and exploring slime.

Puzzle Club

During puzzle club the children have to use their problem solving skills to solve problems and puzzles. They develop their partnership skills when they are working with their friends and sometimes compete against one another.

Problem Solving club

Mrs Drew sets problems for the children to solve each week. They are often based around Maths and encourage us to develop our logical thinking. We also have to co-operate and work as a team to solve the problems.
