TEAMWORK Challenges

There is no I in TEAM!
We are learning to work together as a team to overcome challenges. 
Today we worked in our learning groups problem solving to build the tallest tower, strongest tower.
We discussed being team players (linking to the Olympics) and what team work means. We worked in our learning groups to fit everyone through a hula hoop without unlocking our hands and building the strongest towers out of one piece of newspaper and seven strips of cellotape.
How we show teamwork
-being positive and encouraging others
-Using kind words
-Taking turns and sharing the jobs
-Problem solving
We said: Everyone needs to take part so you don't let yourself and your team down.
Many hands make light work
When you work together you get things done
