Teamwork is an essential skill in a child's ongoing development. Children who cooperate and participate in collaborative activities develop a greater sense of social competency as well as self-confidence. By learning to make friends, working together in team activities and supporting their fellow students, what children learn in the classroom is vital preparation for adulthood.
Including a full lesson and song from the brand-new primary course Happy Campers, these activities encourage children to work together in a fun and lively way.
