What does collaboration look like in Primary?

What words come to mind when you think of collaborative learning?

It might be working together, sharing ideas, listening and helping each other. One phrase that is often used by adults applying for jobs is 'works well as part of a team'. We aim to make sure our children learn and use these skills early in their lives, so they understand how to use and support one another to exceed in their learning journeys.

One of our new IPC personal learning goals is 'to be a collaborator' which has moved away from the old 'cooperation' PLG. We want the children to understand that they shouldn't just sit and be part of a group but that they need to take an active role in group situations and use each other's strengths. Collaborative learning is student centred and focused on communication and the sharing of ideas to support and extend learning. Being an effective collaborator means taking responsibility to contribute ideas, developing leadership skills in certain situations and supporting members of your team to help the group achieve a shared goal. Ask your child how they have been an effective collaborator this week!

'Effective collaborative learning requires much more than just sitting pupils together and asking them to work in a group; structured approaches with well-designed tasks lead to the greatest learning gains.' Education Endowment Foundation.

Over the past few weeks in Year 5, our students have shown they have been good collaborators by working together to investigate problems in Science, by supporting and developing their partner's writing skills by giving peer feedback and by coming together to support each other when considering Mental Health Awareness Day which was our focus on Friday.
