No ‘I’ in TEAM
Another fab day here at Inspire2Learn with nearly 60 Y6 children from Ing Farm in Redcar. The focus was ‘Enterprise’ which we turn into an activity to complete a task given a set of certain guidelines in a given time. The underlying focus of the day are the teamwork skills that the children need to develop alongside their academic qualifications.
As usual we actually started the day with a discussion about what we meant by ‘teamwork’, writing down the key ideas on a Flipchart and referenced throughout the day. The children rose to it magnificently and when pressed to pick out the teams that had stood out in terms of teamwork, the staff were really struggling. All of the children can be very proud of themselves. Their engagement in the task and commitment to getting it done even when there seemed too much to do in so little time was brilliant and a great taste of what many of us feel in our day to day roles. The video is at the bottom showcasing what they managed to get finished for a simple advert but really the story of the day is told by the pictures that demonstrate how well the pupils undertook the tasks. One of the teachers commented on particular individuals who often can find their levels of resilience and engagement wane, in an hour, let alone a day, but today they focussed from start to finish. Many of the videos are not finished but I promised I would post what had been managed so far! Great work everyone and hopefully we will see you again soon:
