Activity Day

25 Year 5 primary school children from Prnnine Way Junior Academy came to Trent College to take part in a team-building outdoor activity morning. The children were taught to work together, communicate in new and different ways, show leadership qualities and problem solve effectively.

Aims

The aim of the project was to give external primary school children the opportunity to come and use our facilities to enhance their curriculum, by experiencing an activity that they would not be able to do at their own school.

Background

The opportunity was identified by the Primary School Liaison Co-ordinator, who through talking to external primary school teachers and heads, was able to match up the resources available at Trent College with a curriculum need of the primary school.

Resources

Two members of Trent College games staff ran the Activity Morning, using all Trent resources for the activities. Refreshments and lunch was provided with no cost implication.
