Our In-School Team will arrive at your school in the morning and set up a range of interactive team building activities each requiring different skills.
- Problem solving
How does the day work?
The event can be run on a large flat area such as a sports field or even in a large indoor area. Your Bowles instructor will coordinate the whole event. Each team will need a school supervisor who will be briefed in advance and provided with an information pack.
The young people will be split into groups and work in teams with the aim of gaining as many team points as they can within the given time. We have over 30 different team challenges which are not only great fun but which have been chosen to make sure the young people to work together.
This event works really well as a three hour session however, we can be flexible in order to fit around your timetable. We will of course need to arrive early and set up the activities on a field/sports ground. The Bowles instructors will then meet the participants and explain how the event works. We will also give a short introduction to teamwork and run an icebreaker event.
The participants will then split up into groups of around 12 and aim to score as many team points as possible. They will pick which activities they would like to do from the central ‘Hub’ and then head off to the correct area. There are no time limits to the activities but the quicker they are completed the more points the team will earn.
Scoring – each group will require an adult/supervisor to work with them and keep a track of the points. The supervisor will also have a role of making sure the groups are not ‘cheating’. All the supervisors will be given training on how the task works and will have an information pack that contains all the answers and tips that can be given to the groups. Supervisors can be any trusted adult or even older pupils.
The Bowles instructors will also be monitoring the tasks and providing support wherever needed.
What kind of challenges will the young people take part in?
Our interactive team building challenges require a number of skills including leadership, co-operation, listening, speaking and planning and include both physical and mental challenges. This allows people with different skill sets to excel and develop at different times.
We can also provide fun, engaging and inclusive team and leadership events for your staff team, this can be as part of an inset day, or to build relationships and resilience amongst your wider staff team.
