The Firs Lower School Value of the Month

Our value for October is Collaboration/Teamwork

In school, we have explained to the children that collaboration is about working as a team with co-operation and patience to achieve a common goal.  They can achieve their best as a team by having good relationships with others (for example, working with any of their peers without complaint) and by making good choices because that will benefit the group as a whole.  We have discussed how practising collaboration and teamwork will help them throughout their life.

We are asking parents/carers at home to send in a note if they think their child has demonstrated collaboration/teamwork, describing how they showed this value.  We will celebrate some of their achievements in assembly (if they are happy with this).  Examples of collaboration might be:

  • Demonstrating a willingness to work/play with everyone – not just their best friends.
  • Listening respectfully to both their peers and to adults.
  • Supporting the ideas of another person even if they don’t agree with them.
  • Consistently taking a fair share of something they are offered.
