Problem solving and independence

18 May 2023 |

Bonjour! We’ve had a great night’s sleep and we are all raring to go today.

This morning’s challenge is to pack our bags and strip our beds as well as make our own picnic. We are looking forward to visiting the market.

Last night we had a great evening of activities. There was ping pong, boules, football, rounders, volleyball, dance as well as card games, mindfulness and reading. It was lovely to see pupils and teachers from all 11 Dartmoor MAT schools mixing and having fun. One of our aims of our Turing Scheme project was to develop pupils’ resilience, problem solving and independence . We have been impressed with how pupils have been supporting each other in so many different ways. It was particularly nice to see how well pupils served each other dinner.
