Years 12 and 13 welcomed Hoopla, the comedy improv group, into school for a day of team building exercises.
Improv demands that people work together as a team to create ideas out of nothing, with no resources apart from each other. It is all based on collaboration not competition and creating an atmosphere of safety, trust and support; excellent things to base a team building day on.
There were memory games, and lots of short activities to encourage students to interact with each other as well as team based challenges. The day was voted both enjoyable and fun and a real success in terms of students getting to know each other better and building their identity as a whole sixth form.
