On 18th November 2016, King Edward VI High school hosted an Enrichment day. All years took part and helped to participate in these activities and events. For Year 7, they did the desert challenge (involved in using newspaper to build a shelter from the sun which had to fit in one person),creative croissants in origami (this involved using paper to make it into a shape of a croissant) and self-portraits in art (this involved each group having a portrait divided into squares and each person was responsible for recreating one square using different textures and materials). Some of these challenges had prizes and rewards for the best. For Year 8, they were doing problem solving in both P.E and maths and designing products. For Year 9, they were learning about culture and countries in humanities and English. In Year 10, they chose what they wanted to do in work experience and working on their CVs. Finally, in Year 11, they were doing their Science controlled assessments for their GSCE’s. Most of these activities that took place helped students with leadership skills, teamwork ability and problem solving skills. We had interviewed students on what they were doing and if they enjoyed it or not. These interviews were with Evie Austin and Max Greensill; you can see these interviews on KEVI TV. All of the other students looked like they were enjoying themselves as we went around the school.
