STUDENTS from King Richard School in Paulsgrove will be taking part in a thinking skills workshop.

Organised by Honda’s School of Dreams team, they will visit the school next week to work with pupils up to the age of 13.

The workshop will be supported by Hendy Honda, also based in Portsmouth, and staff from the company will participate in the workshop along with the students and teachers.

The School of Dreams says it wants to help young people to understand the importance of pursuing their dreams, and teaches skills and strategies to help turn their dreams into reality.

The programme has been mapped against the National Curriculum’s Personal Learning and Thinking Skills framework.

Over the course of the two days, pupils experience all 10 of the learning strategies identified in the Leading in Learning education initiative.

Teachers and pupils work at the same level in small groups learning how to turn their dreams into reality by learning from real-life examples of people who have achieved their dreams and developing new skills such as juggling.

Mark Busby, sales and marketing director at Hendy Honda, said: ‘It is great to support the workshop in our local school.

‘To help children understand they can turn their dreams into reality by learning to use strategies in their early lives will undoubtedly have a positive effect on the local community.

‘We believe children and young adults deserve all the help they can get.’

There are 50 schools taking part in the current workshop programme.
