Discussion question: Ask pupils to talk about the benefits of working as a team? Ask children to recall a time they had to work within a team and what they enjoyed and disliked about it.
Active learning: Split the children into small groups, 5-6 children per group and provide them with a different size object to catch. With each group spread out safely, set them a time frame (i.e. 2 minutes) in which they need to throw and catch the ball within their group. They must count how many completed catches they do. (Dropped catches don’t count).
Rotate various pieces of equipment between each group, allowing you to make the challenge easier or harder.
Using a selection of “team challenge cards”.
Split the children into groups of 5 or 6 and provide each team with a resource card. Demonstrate the challenge so children can see what they need to do Ask the children to solve the problem presented to them, within the time frame set by the teacher. Rotate the children clockwise so they get chance to experience all stations over the course of the lesson. Ensure children have opportunities for self-reflection during the lesson.
