We have had some great conversations in our R-time around what working together looks like. This week the children had the challenge of working in pairs to create ‘something’ out of three pieces of Lego. As always the children greeted their partner with a smile and kind words, using eye contact and showing their partner using their body language that they are a team. I was really impressed by how all of the children showed their partner that they cared by taking it in turns to speak and listening carefully to each other. We explored how showing our partner that we care by using our R-time skills filled them with good feelings and then that filled us with good feelings too! How great is that?

Here Jacob and Alfred worked in a team to build using their blocks. They couldn’t decide whose idea to use so they made both!
