The school curriculum gives opportunities to practice these 8 skills throughout the school day. Teachers make reference to the skills in different lessons and activities and make it explicit when they can use these skills and see them in action. This makes the skills relevant to the children's lives. The Skills Builder lessons give opportunity for explicit teaching of the skills, but the wider curriculum gives opportunity to put the skills into practice and use strategies taught in everyday life to develop their skills. As well as our usual weekly lessons, children have been given the opportunity to practice these skills in events we have throughout the year - for example, our 7 billion ideas project, the Fiver challenge, Kit car racing, sports day and school plays. When any problems arise, teachers make reference back to the skills and remind children of what can be done to resolve them, such as working as a team or listening and get the children to suggest strategies that we have learnt that may help.
