This half term our challenges have been linked to our experience outcome of creating a 3 D model of a habitat. We have also been able to  welcome Class Potter’s Year 1 children into our challenge teams to work alongside their peers in Class Nightingale.

The photographs below catch some of our great team work in action!.

We are working hard on War themed Challenges this term. Today we enjoyed watching 2 groups’ films about life in the trenches. They worked well together as Cool Collaborators, developing their teamwork skills of listening and communicating with each other. They discovered how working in a large group can be more difficult than working in a small group and also how to compromise.

Joshua has been working hard on a War-themed board game. He has presented it very well – and certainly succeeded at being a Challenge Conqueror, maintaining a high level of concentration over the past few weeks.
