This week selected Year 7 and 8 students took part in sessions run and organised by Into University, an organisation which focuses on encouraging students to succeed in education and beyond.
Year 8 students, who begin their GCSEs next academic year, evaluated their own learning styles and how they can use this understanding to help with exam preparation and revision. Students then learned about different careers and the qualifications and experience needed.
Year 7 students focused on key skills such as communication, teamwork and problem-solving. Their practical sessions involved the human knot, blindfolded puzzles and line whisper drawings!
Students competed as teams for points and prizes and one student from each year group won a memory stick in recognition for their positive contributions to the sessions. In Year 8 this went to Daniel Gill and the Year 7 prize went to Riley Knowles.
Thanks to Into University for delivering such engaging and productive workshops for Regents Park KS3 students.
