Discussion question: Ask the children what skills they need to work in a team?
Ask what “teamwork” means to them? Can they provide any examples of teams who are successful and the reasons why?
Active Learning: Children will play a game of cat and mouse. Give 1 or 2 children a bib to wear, they will be the cats, and provide the rest of the children with a bib to tuck into the back of their shorts, so they are the mice. Encourage children to travel in different ways whilst they avoid being caught (having their bib pulled out of their shorts). Once a child is caught, they will need to stand on the sidelines until the game is complete. Increase the number of cats as the games go on to make the activity more difficult. Ensure children show respect and demonstrate good teamwork.
Ensure all children show respect to their teammates and the other teams alike. The atmosphere for children to perform in a competitive environment is key, encourage children to cheer for their team.
