KS2 Group Work – Collaborative Activities

Useful ideas to develop group work skills in your class Develop your group-work skills with help from KS2 teacher Natalie Worsfold, Tony Russell of the SPRinG Project (Social Pedagogic Research into Groupwork), and Sport Relief 08 education resources.

The SPRinG project, formed at the Institute of Education several years ago, set out to develop principles that underpin successful group work and to provide statistical evidence that regular group work can enhance achievement, motivation and learning.

Tony Russell brings his observation skills to Natalie’s classroom, and together they outline the benefits, problems and solutions for bringing group work into this PSHE/geography lesson.

The lesson uses a Sport Relief 08 ‘mystery challenge’ lesson plan, revolving around the story of a deprived 10 year old girl from Brazil, to stimulate group discussion as well as highlighting global issues of poverty.
