Life Skills Passport Challenge

Hello everyone
We have been thinking about new ways to use our learning time away from school, and for you to interact with us in school. We have really enjoyed you sharing your valuable achievements that aren’t school work. These things are life skills – things that begin to prepare you for life as a grown-up. So we came up with the Life Skills Challenge. This is a list of things that will help prepare you for the future. From tying your own shoelaces (sorry but you will have to stop using Velcro fastening shoes at some point) and washing your own hair, to budgeting for a food shop (hmmm Mars bars or bread – what do you need most?).
We have come up with 48 skills to try out in our Life Skills Passport. Taking part is optional and you do not have to do every skill – in fact some will be impossible for some: e.g. not everyone has a pet, a younger sibling or a needle and thread – but we would like you try. Many of you can already do lots! Tick the ones you can already do, and then choose new skills to focus on. Get someone to take a photo or video of you doing them and send it to us via email or Dojo!
When you have ticked as many skills as you can, get an adult to complete the bottom of the passport with your name, the number of skills you have completed and sign it. If you complete 15 skills, you will get a Bronze Certificate, 25 skills will get you a Silver Certificate, 35 skills will get you a Gold Certificate and 40 completed skills will get you a Platinum Certificate!
Some skills are in red and say Adult supervision in brackets. These are things that may involve using hot/sharp items, chemicals or things that could cause harm if done incorrectly. We do not want anyone to get injured, cause a flood using the washing machine or break a prized ornament while dusting! Your own adults may decide you personally need less supervision, or that some other skills should be more closely supervised. That is up to them – so please ask first! Have fun, we are looking forward to seeing photos of your achievements. Stay Safe!
