Teamwork makes it, so you can finish your task really easily.

It's important to teach the students how to have group and peer discussion to solve conflict and issues that may arise when having to work with other people. It’s fantastic to see how teams and individuals respond to the discussion their groups have.

Teamwork means you need to listen to the builder because they do all the hard work.

What was a change you could have made in the way you listen to others?

One person speaking at a time.

We could have listened better to the architect.

How well did your group brainstorm?

Good because we all shared ideas.

We didn't argue over jobs.

What strategies did you use?

We left gaps in between blocks. Team work, we used our imagination.

To use less blocks.

How did you work in your group?

We all participated well.

We listened to the speaker.

As a class we have loved the resources on the Movewell website under the cooperation tab. Focusing on the  Team Build, Inchworm and Clock Dribble actitivtes. The discussions are all based on working together as a team. Some in small groups and others as a whole class.

My mission here at Wairakei Primary School is to assist children in developing their passion and skills to become lifelong learners. I believe it is vital that we allow the children to have an impact on the world one step at a time.

On a personal note, I am a fun and energetic person who loves all things sport. You will find me on the sideline of almost any sports game. I am involved in touch rugby, social football and hockey. I am also a little bit of a gym-junkie, who is always up for a challenge.
