Importance Of Fun Day At School
Tender years are a fantastic opportunity for students to develop important life skills such as teamwork and leadership skills. Tender years also offer pupils a chance to challenge their abilities and develop new friendships. These years can come in many forms, from school trips to sports days.
At Fun Matters, we offer activity day packages that are perfect for creating a fun and enriching environment for pupils of all ages. Fun day helps new pupils engage with each other and develop their confidence. Whatever the basis fo the fun day, here are 7 key benefits to your child.
1. Team Building
As a parent, you will know how important teamwork is as a life skill and therefore how important it is for school to offer a range of opportunities to develop team-building skills in various settings. The early years are the ideal setting to develop team-building skills centered on outdoor physical activities and games.
Creating a fun day for students helps to ensure all students feel involved and engaged this motivates each other, further aiding in the development of supportive team-working behaviors that will be of benefit to the students in many future situations.
2. Leadership Skills
Leadership skills are an important life skill and one which is highly desirable in the workplace. Therefore, schools need to offer opportunities for students to develop leadership skills. Leadership skills allow students to learn the art of building relationships within teams, defining identities and achieving tasks effectively. It also provides an opportunity to learn to identify and display effective communication and interpersonal skills.
3. Confidence Development
Being confident about something you’ve never tried before is hard. Many students suffer from feelings of self-doubt and a general lack of confidence, particularly when trying new things. By creating a fun day that offers pupils new challenges, you can offer pupils a safe environment to test their abilities and improve their confidence in themselves. Giving them a challenge in a relaxed, ungraded, and supportive environment can grow the students’ confidence and ability more rapidly and with less stress.
4. Relationship Development
The ability to make new friends and connections can be an invaluable life skill and is often overlooked in a traditional classroom. Throughout their lives, pupils will need to be able to develop new relationships with others both for personal benefit and in a workplace setting. Therefore, helping pupils to not only develop new friendships on the day but also develop the skills to better create new connections in the future is a key benefit of a fun day.
5. Coordination Skills
Hand-eye coordination is a key skill for primary school pupils and one which is commonly developed through sports and P.E. lessons. However, for pupils who are potentially more shy or nervous in sporty settings, a fun day can be an ideal opportunity to help them develop these skills in a relaxed environment.
6. Good Sportsmanship
Another important life skill is good sportsmanship. This is an often-overlooked life skill but one which can be hugely beneficial in the workplace, particularly when developing new peer relationships in competitive fields such as sales and marketing. The key to developing good sportsmanship is to teach pupils how to balance being enthusiastic about winning and also being gracious in defeat.
7. Determination and Challenges
Creating challenges for pupils encourages them to develop skills in determination and problem-solving. These are important soft skills for their future both academically and in the workplace. We often see younger pupils flourishing as they work to overcome the challenges set for them.
Pupils have a sense of success and improved self-esteem as they can see their own abilities in a new light after a fun day.
