Farlingaye High School

A HIGH school in Suffolk has been working with Skills Builder Partnership since 2018 to develop the eight Essential Skills. These are the skills that underpin success at every stage of life: they unlock learning while at school, ensure young people are fully prepared for the independence of university and college, and empower people to land their dream job. Students and teachers at Farlingaye High School, in Woodbridge, have been developing the eight Essential Skills by using the Skills Builder resources in their Careers lessons. Year 8 students were given the opportunity to apply their skills practice and take on the Operation Moonbase mission on their exciting Challenge Day. Tasked to find a way to help solve the problem of a booming population, students worked in teams to establish a new society on a distant moon.

They explored their Leadership skills by becoming managers, selecting a crew to support them on their mission, as well as taking responsibility for designing a constitution of laws as politicians. Applying their Problem

Solving and Teamwork skills at the highest standard, they created their dream cities within tight budgets and even tighter deadlines. Teams were challenged to use their creativity skills when taking on the role of architects and builders to make their ideal moonbase come to life in model form. The day culminated in a test of the learners' presenting skills as they put together a persuasive pitch to advertise their new society. In what was a very tight timescale, the students rose to the occasion and should be extremely proud of their efforts.

The students gained a lot from the experience and commented: “The two skills we feel we have developed the most today are Leadership and Teamwork. We worked best when one person took the lead to guide our team so we all knew what we needed to do.” “Today was entertaining as well as challenging!” Mrs Laird, Assistant Headteacher and Careers Lead, said, “It’s been lovely to see how students worked as teams. They recognised their strengths and contributed them to support their teammates and complete the tasks.”


THE latest taster course for people interested in trying out different types of art had 14 enthusiastic participants who turned out some really good work. There will be further courses, the first around Easter time. Details will appear on our Facebook page. Anyone interested in joining the club can also use Facebook to ask for an application form and further details. Technophobes can use snail mail or call into the club during exhibition opening times to pick up a form. The AGM which takes

place in mid March will elect a new committee who will get working on a programme of events for the coming year, which will include more evening and weekend activities

MARK WELFORD As an English tutor, working across a range of age groups, I still continue to be inspired by the enthusiasm and achievements my students show in the subject. In many ways English tuition is proving itself to be a valuable addition for an increasing number of students. Building on the foundations that schools provide, I am able to add a flexible learning approach, helping to instill confidence in both understanding and application. Whether you are a student wanting that extra guidance, or a parent wanting to understand the examinations better, and ways to best help their child, then please get in touch.

RENDLESHAM DAY NURSERY CELEBRATES 14TH ANNIVERSARY Rendlesham Day Nursery will be celebrating 14 years since they opened in April 2005. The nursery was opened by husband and wife team Dan and Tina Powick who were childminders in Woodbridge at the time. They have since looked after several hundred children and received an outstanding award in the most recent Ofsted inspection. They were the first nursery in Suffolk to have web cams so that parents are able to

watch their children securely on line and they also opened Bridge Farm Day Nursery in Martlesham in 2008. Dan credits the success of the nurseries to the staff, 'We have been very lucky that many of our staff have been with us 10 years or more including our Manager and Deputy Manager at both nurseries. All staff show amazing dedication and care to the children and take their roles very seriously.'
