FPS 2011

Welcome to REACH 2011 - once again we are looking forward to a year of fun and learning.
This year we have a group of Year 5 and 6 students participating in a programme called Future Problem Solving. The students will be working together as a team to solve problems of the future - the students work through a set of problem solving steps that will help them in the future with problems they are likely to face.
This terms topic is "Healthy Living", we have begun our problem solving by researching what 'Healthy living' means to us. The students have been quick to discover that Healthy Living is not just about the food we eat, but also other factors such as stress, exercise, sleep, wellness to name a few. We then have a future scenario that must be well understood to continue. In our scenario Robert is a 13 year old Boy, it is set in 2040 and in a time where medical technology means we can increase our life span by consuming synthetic nutrition! Our first challenge is to identify a number of challenges or problems Robert will face. We will keep you posted!
