How many times have you walked into a business and everyone was the same age and from the same housing estate? None? Me neither. One of the real strengths of our events at Inspire2Learn is the constant mix of pupils of all ages. The way that we structure tasks means that they are often easy to access for most ages but are then differentiated through the experiences and skills that different pupils bring. Today is a great example. We have pupils from William Cassidi Primary, Unity Academy and Catcote Academy. The age range os from Y5 – Y13! And has that hampered anyone? Has that changed the task in any way? Not one jot. In fact it creates a really purposeful atmosphere. As always the start of the day was focussed on what we mean by effective teamwork. That created a set of criteria which we will be looking for as the day progresses. Completing the task has required the groups to define roles, create a plan for the time available and get on with it. You can see form the pictures below that there have been some really great strategies developed to complete the task and the quality fo the work so far has been exceptional:
