Oasis Academy John Williams
Located in Bristol, Oasis Academy John Williams are in their second year of working with Skills Builder, and are keen to ensure students across the school have opportunities to work creatively and collaboratively whilst using their essential skills. Today's enterprising challenge was a great chance for everyone to be focusing on developing their 'skills'.
Over the course of the challenge, learners applied essential skills to answer the question: What makes a successful society? They worked in teams to establish a new society on a distant moon called Utopia. They applied Problem Solving to select a crew to support them on their mission and applied Creativity to design a new species of animal to benefit society. Then, they applied Teamwork, Leadership and Staying Positive skills to design and create a model of the first city on Utopia. The day culminated with teams applying Presenting and Listening skills, as they shared their new societies with the wider group. At the end of the challenge, learners applied Aiming High by reflecting on the essential skills they had used throughout the challenge.
