      It was a great session, thanks Kate! I think the simple yet effective sessions, like this one, work well - the children were allowed appropriate time to explore and work with a new tool/s as well as problem solve for themselves.

      The KC focus of Participating and Contributing was really evident as they had time to do exactly this! It was great to see them helping out more with other schools too, ie just pop over to another school's group to offer some support. I think as we take up their suggestion of more input/leadership/presenting from them this will develop further.

      The children felt a higher sense of achievement as they managed to complete the task successfully - this made the PMI/reflection at the end far more relevant. Good stuff Cool
