Newham Education Business Partnership
Workshop Programme in Primary Schools
A Workshop Programme delivered in 15 primary Schools in the London
Borough for the Education Business Partnership. 450 pupils, age-range
8-11, took part in the Workshops, which included Building Structures
and Model Making.
The Workshop went really well. It helped build invaluable
team skills that the children will use in all curriculum areas.
The Workshop links particularly well with literacy through speaking
and listening, PSHE and Design Technology.

The Workshop was excellent – thoroughly
enjoyed by students and staff! It was an excellent opportunity
for children to learn about working together, in pairs and in
small groups, before working as a whole class. The use of different
materials and techniques will be useful in future DT and Art
projects. It also added to my teaching knowledge.
The use of illustrations was good and helped to spark imaginations. It was
lovely to see children using great imagination to describe 3 bits of wood as
a shape / building / Structures. Definitely an idea to reuse in different contexts.

Teamwork and emphasis on each member’s role and
Communication and importance of listening and talking
is stressed throughout the Workshop
High expectations were set and each pupil left the room with
a sense of ownership!
Pupils were also encouraged to reflect on the purpose of life – to
make the world a better place - and the role they have to play.
