Panyaden Life Skills Class

Panyaden Life Skills class- Y6 and 7 students rice harvesting

Life Skills Class

Our rice plants have thrived despite the October flash floods. Year 6/7 Life Skills class is back to help harvest the crops, a great way to learn first-hand about the life of a rice farmer, to learn practical skills and work as a team. See more photos of the activity here in our school blog gallery and our Facebook page.

Panyaden’s Life Skills programme engages our students in interactive learning such as sustainable living, useful traditional know-how and crafts as well as outdoor survival skills. It also gives students practical opportunities to acquire valuable life skills lessons and essential personal qualities that can be applied to many different areas of their lives. Find out more about the programme on our website’s curriculum page.

Year 5 students preparing our fields for rice planting later this month. Panyaden’s Life Skills programme integrates practical skills (like how to use a hoe), science and social science (the rice plant life cycle and crop production) and essential personal qualities like perseverance, patience, teamwork and valuing the work of others (such as the farmers who work in the hot sun to produce the food that we eat).
