The Problem Solving Company 2019

The Problem Solving Company


Children from Reception to Year 6 have been treated to a visit from The Problem Solving Company. Each class was given the opportunity to solve a variety of hands on problems which promoted the importance of trial and error and perseverance.


At Pelham we strive to build resilience within every child so that they can enter the wider world with the skills to succeed. We encourage and celebrate mistakes as an important step to success whilst building and strengthening perseverance. The problems allowed the children to practice these skills and it was a pleasure to watch them turn-take, share opinions and work together.


The children were enthusiastic, engaged and rose to the challenges and as you can see from the photos, many of the children were successful.
