Here pupils will understand why it is important to know what is meant by skills and strengths?

This is the practical application of what pupils have learnt so far. They will work in teams with a competitive element.

“I feel this was really relevant to their age and stage... It really allowed some of my not so confident pupils to explore and discuss their own personal skills. I think it is excellent for raising their self-esteem. I would definitely use this again.”
