Teambuilding

Learning to work as a team is an essential skill for children to learn. Here at Ufton Court, we develop these skills using activities that are designed to challenge and encourage children to work together whilst building friendships with those around them. Many tasks will aim to improve communication skills, as well as the ability to cooperate with others.
