Working with Others

On Monday 13th December, the whole school enjoyed a Working With Others Christmas Day. The children were grouped with lots of different children from their class to complete different activities during the day.  
Each class was given a different day from the 12 Days of Christmas to create props and then perform their section of the song at the end of the day. 
We had lots of fun and it was lovely to see all the children working together as a school.
Our 12 Days of Christmas Song has been shared on Seesaw.
At Bartons we believe that it is very important for all children to develop their ability to work with others in collaboration as well as to develop their independence. For a number of years we have been part of the Working with Others (WWO) programme and we have worked hard to embed this throughout the school.
WWO is a collaborative learning approach which supports the development of skills in building positive relations and ways of successfully working with other people especially in groups. WWO is well known to many schools in West Sussex, with a 14 year track record of successful impact in learning in the early years and across the primary school phase.
