Independent Life Skills in Year 7

The Year 7 pupils have shown enthusiasm for creating the raised beds for the new allotment area and have really taken ownership of the tasks in each stage of the process. First, they thought carefully about the colour of the outdoor paint, giving reasons for their choices and voting for their preferred options. Next, they changed into suitable clothing and learned how to safely carry and paint planks of wood. The pupils then joined the wood by hammering nails and using a screwdriver during the construction process. It’s been fantastic seeing the class engaged in a whole learning process, trying new skills, developing independence with practical skills and demonstrating perseverance. What excellent work!
