Working together

This afternoon I set Y6 a challenge, they had to build the tallest structure using 5 pieces of A4 paper, elastic bands and tape. Working in groups they had to problem solve, co-operate, be respectful, considerate and work together.

Working as a team isn't always easy. Can you give reasons why?

Here they are in action.

Here are some questions;
  • Was your team effective?
  • Did you all play an active role?
  • Did anyone act as leader?
  • What would you do differently next time?
  • What did you learn from this activity?

Do you like questionnaires? If you do and you would like to find out about your personality, click here
Let me know what you find out and if it is a true reflection of your personality.

  2. Hi Mrs Warner i think we all worked toether, i did the job what i was told to do, also i didn't play as the leader.And if i had to improve our tower it would be to make it tall but make sure that if we added a extra tube then it would probally fall over .

  3. Our team was very effective and i played the active role of a leader! Well, ours won but the only thing would be to make it more straight! I learnt that teamwork is really important if u need to make something big in a limited space of time! from becky year 6
