Park Lane Primary School
Park Lane Primary in Brent are developing students essential skills through a combination of Lesson-time Projects, Challenge Days and visits to employers. Our work with Park Lane is supported by Quintain, the development team behind Wembley Park.
Save the Children
Save the Children run world-class programmes to save children’s lives and challenge world leaders to keep to their promises to give children a brighter future. They work in more than 120 countries, including the UK.
Spread the Word
Today's challenge was to 'spread the word' about our host by creating an exciting new mascot with an important message. Throughout the day, the learners carried out lots of research, demonstrating their excellent Listening skills. The teams went on a tour and learned a little about the fantastic work being carried out on a daily basis by the different departments and their team members. Back in the room, it was time to get Problem Solving to research all the facts they could, before using their Creativity to come up with designs for a new mascot in order to promote positive messages. Later in the day, the students designed posters to showcase their new mascot and spread the word, before presenting their designs through exciting and informative news broadcasts.

It was a very inspiring day - we should bring more children to on trips like this!

It was great to see the quieter groups at the start of the day come out of their shells and work together as a team. They really surprised us with their brilliant presentations.
