Year 9 Challenge Day

May 2021

On 25 May Year 9 were able to take part in an exciting team-building project with a company called Spy Games. Each team completed several different activities in order to earn more ‘spy dollars’ and the team who had the most won. In the morning the challenges ranged from water bottle cannons to making ramps for balls. After a lovely barbequed lunch we continued with other interesting events. I really enjoyed each of the challenges as they bonded us as a group and made us share each of our ideas. I especially liked the memory grid, where we had to each try and find the single correct way through the grid. It made the team communicate together and work strategically under time pressure. I think this was a fun experience for everyone and the leaders were all so lovely and created a really enjoyable day.
