Cooperative Learning Strategies (CLS)

              This week we are focusing on class and milepost team building activities.
              The children will take part in a range of pair, small group, whole class and milepost activities in which they will develop their cooperation and                  communication qualities.  Ask your child which Cooperative Learning Strategies they have used during the day [line up, bingo, find someone                   who, curtain game...]
