In our second Inspirational Outreach session with pupils in Year 5 and 6 at Ysgol Rhosneigr, we used the MTa pass kit (equipment for experiential learning). Students were set a range of challenges which help develop their thinking skills.
As teamwork is very important to JET, the activities were specially selected to encourage the pupils to work effectively with each other. The pupils created a fantastic range of creations using the MTa kit.
“We had to think of ideas as a team. It was fun because we got to try to solve challenges that we have never done before.” Stephanie, 10
The development of the pupils’ initial outlook was evident as the session progressed. Challenges which at first were seen as ‘impossible’ soon became achievable.
