Our sessions normally last for approx 35 mins for Reception and Year 1 and 40-50 mins for the other year groups. We can however offer longer sessions lasting a full day depending on the different aims and objectives of the school.

This Primary School version of our Challenge Carousel has been adapted from our incredibly popular Secondary School version. It offers a collection of approx 24 team building and problem solving activities which encourage the participating students to plan, communicate, work together whilst staying motivated to finish the tasks. It’s a great way for schools to run large Team Building Days and keep the cost down. We find that this is very popular choice for Year 6/7 transition days.

Instructors come to the school and setup and oversee a large carousel of approx 24 activities. The students work in groups of approx 7-10, and visit different activity locations with a teacher / TA or parent. It will be their job to help score the students.

Each activity station has clear written instructions for the students and any guidance notes for the staff.

Split days with different groups of students in the day does NOT incur an extra charge.

A great advantage of this type of day is to that it keeps the cost down per head
