As part of a PSHEC lesson this term, Year 3 were thinking about how well they work as a group. To develop this and allow them an opportunity to reflect, they took part in a ‘Carrot Car Race’.
The two groups were given the equipment (2 or 3 carrots, cocktail sticks and string), and allowed twenty minutes to create a moveable car that could go the distance of the playground without breaking down.
During the race there were a few pit – stops to allow the girls to repair their vehicles and decide what could have been done better.
Following the task, girls discussed how they got on working as a group. Every girl recognised that there were areas they could develop in order to be a better team member.
