Team work. Team work. Team work. Why is it important?
Well… it builds relationships; strengthens friendships; improves confidence; develops people-skills; proves loyalties and creates bonds between individuals.
At Kingswood, the children aren’t just here to have fun, (although this is an important element of the experience) we are here to learn and develop new skills – team work being one of the main objectives of nearly all of these activities.
Whether it’s undertaking a trust exercise, building something together as a team or working with a partner towards a shared goal, Kingswood is encouraging us to work together.
Jacob’s Ladder is impossible without team work. Your challenge is to provide physical and mental support to a partner while you both climb increasingly higher on a ladder fit for a giant. Scary? Yes. Exciting? YES! Impossible? Never.
Here we are working together in our pairs to see how far we can go.
Not only are our team working skills improving by the minute, we’re also learning just what we’re physically and mentally capable of.
The answer? A lot more than we first thought.
It doesn’t matter how high we get, it’s all about team work
