Working with others

Year 1 Puffins have been discussing what is working with others?

Why do we need to work as a team?
– if someone struggling we help each other out (Brooke)
– makes you feel happy when you help each other (Amelia)
– can get more work done and make more friends (Shona)

The Puffins then demonstrated how to work as an effective team by getting from one side of the playground to the other and they were not allow to touch the floor. They all worked amazingly as a team. Well done.
