Over 5000 UK primary and secondary schools have now hosted one or more Puzzle Challenge Days with The Happy Puzzle Company.

Our programmes use large 3D puzzles and challenges. They all look incredibly easy… until the students start trying to solve them! Their task then becomes one of turning the apparently impossible into the possible. As they do so, each student will improve their personal learning and thinking skills and their team skills, whilst boosting their confidence in the process and raising their expectations of what they can achieve in the classroom.

A Puzzle Challenge Day consists of between three and five programmes with up to 60 students in each session. In most cases, the structure of your Puzzle Challenge Day will enable between 180 and 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 will be solved within a few minutes, but which require each team to work together and carefully develop strategies in order to find a solution. If the temptation to give up starts to appear, the programme teaches the students how to persevere, put their own skills to better use as part of a team and overcome difficulties by approaching problems from different perspectives.

The programme lengths are flexible to enable us to fit into your school’s timetable. Generally though, each session lasts for between 60 and 90 minutes, spread across the day.

All of the challenges are age and ability appropriate and the programmes are also suitable, and especially beneficial to students with specific learning difficulties and for Gifted and Talented programmes.
