Puzzle Challenge Days
What is a Puzzle Challenge Day?
Welcome to one of the most extraordinary educational experiences your students will ever have!
A Puzzle Challenge Day consists of between three and five programme with up to 60 students in each session. In most cases, the structure of your Puzzle Challenge Day will enable between 180 - 300 of your students to take part. Each student takes part in one of the programmes.
Your students will encounter a variety of challenges, most of which can be solved within a few minutes, but which require collaborative learning skills with a careful strategic planning in order to find a solution. If the temptation to give up starts to appear, the programme teaches students how to persevere, put their own skills to better use as part of a team and overcome difficulties by approaching problems from a different perspective.
The programme lengths are flexible to enable us to fit into your school's timetable. Generally though, each session lasts for between 60 - 90 minutes, spread across the day.
All of the challenges are age and ability appropriate and the programmes are also suitbale, and especially beneficial to students with specific learning difficulties and for Gifted and Talented programmes.
