Mrs Marilyn Nadesan
Minister of State for Schools and Kelly Tolhurst get their
“Skills for Life”
Warren Wood Primary Academy pupils were thrilled when Nick Gibb, Minister of State for Schools dropped in with Conservative candidate for Rochester and Strood to the “Skills for Life” assembly.
Darren Winter, from BAE Systems in Rochester, fascinated pupils with the work of engineers during a dynamic assembly and encouraged the children to be creative and imaginative in lessons as part of our “Skills for Life” ethos across the Greenacre Academy Trust. Pupils were stunned to learn that Darren insists that all of the engineers in his team play with Lego building blocks every day to help them be more creative. This assembly was part of a series delivered by leaders in business and have been arranged by Nikki King OBE, Chair of the Greenacre Academy Trust.
The Minister then visited lessons throughout the academy to see how the Greenacre Academy Trust is ensuring pupils develop the creative thinking skills to become the engineers of the future. Year 6 were keen to show off their creative performing arts skills and year 3 told the Minister about their most recent story books. Kelly discussed with Head of School, Marilyn Nadesan, how the Skills for Life agenda was reflected in lessons and school life every day.
Marilyn Nadesan, Head of School said 'It is imperative that we give children at primary school the academic and life skills so that they achieve a good level of independence and confidence by the time they are ready for secondary. Our Year 6 pupils attend Greenacre Academy on two afternoons a week, where they have lessons in Design and Technology, Cooking, Music and Drama, provided by specialist teachers. They are not daunted by the prospect of secondary school because the experiences they have at Greenacre Academy are extremely positive.'
