Reflection- competition and teamwork

Today I learned that putting a little bit of competition into a team situation adds pressure on that team. This was during our session after lunch when we were playing a game of passing the cushballs around. I modified the game and put a time target on it for the team to get the cushball around forwards and then back again.

Because of this learning I realised that it is important to always discuss the purpose of an activity such as this because it can be an opportunity to discuss the key competencies.

The next step in my learning is to always ensure that opportunities for learning are discussed and shared- for that is how we can maximise our thinking. I'm looking forward to tomorrow with this receptive bunch of learners!
