Team building activities for school groups

Team Building has long been seen as a way to get large businesses to work together more effectively, but the same advantages are every bit as useful for groups of school children. We see a lot of team building requests at the start of the academic year, but we have plenty of opportunities for activity days, residentials and workshops throughout the year.

Team building activities, through games or challenges, help children develop a number of key skills that will benefit them in the classroom and throughout their lives.

The benefits of team building include the development communication skills, problem solving, leadership, creative thinking and listening. Working together in groups, children learn to cooperate in a fun environment through interaction with their peers.

To boost the team spirit of your class, have a look at some of the suggestions below. These providers recognise the benefits and include team working into what they offer. Alternatively, complete the short form on this page to tell us what you are looking for, or visit our residential team building page for multi-day team building, or day and workshop team building for single days.

Broughton School - our team building experience

In early September last year, we treated our new year 6 classes to a team building day. The goal was to challenge them, promote teamwork within each school house and at the same time break the ice with their new teachers and have lots of fun.

During the course of the day our children took part in various problem solving activities, a team competition on an assault course, and a mini olympics where both individual and team points were collected. Each of activities challenged them and required them to work together to achieve the goals they were set.

The day was really well orgnised, with the children being encouraged to work well together. Watching them helping each other to get points that would benefit their houses rather than themelves was great to see. They all reported an enjoyable day out and we will definitely be making this a yearly event for the school.
