Birch's Team Building Challenges

Yesterday, Birch started off the new half term with some team building activities. In groups of 4, the children had to work together as a team to build the tallest tower possible using... their shoes! There was a lot of discussion about the best ways of starting, with Melisa's group agreeing that the biggest shoes should go at the bottom.


Alex and Grace was obviously pleased that their tower worked!

Morgan and Evie managed to use Charlie's and Oliver H's shoes well!


 The next challenge was to describe an image on the board to a member of the group who couldn't see it, but needed to draw it. Communication, clarity, and speed were all needed to succeed in this task!

 On reflection of her group's performance, Jorja said everyone in her group managed to communicate effectively under pressure. Other members of the class said that it was sometimes difficult to explain something that seemed so obvious!

 This was an excellent activity that promoted reciprocity and reflectiveness, both of which we will be focusing on this half term!
