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.
