 Ambassador Awards 2017-2018

This year we have incorporated the Learning Passport within a document that recognises children’s achievements in school and the wider community. What is expected in order for children to achieve their ’Ambassador Award’ comes under 4 headings:

  • Citizenship
  • Relationships
  • Learning
  • Behaviour and conduct

Each section has elements that underpin the values that as a school we hold dear. We believe that learning is something that continues every minute of the waking day and it is important to recognise children’s achievements not only in lessons but beyond. Adults in school will discuss each section with the children and how they can meet the criteria identified; we are hoping that the children will be able to take some ownership of the passport themselves!

Have a look at the Ambassador leaflet to find out more and look through 'Steps to Success' passport the Year 6 children will be working through this year to help them achieve their Ambassador Awards!

Homework:

All of the pupils will be following the normal literacy and numeracy strategies along with science, ICT, topic etc. Please find below expected minimum homework requirements during this term.

Reading - 3 x 15mins per week - this will help the children to both build a love of literature and their stamina for reading longer texts - a skill needed for the end of Key Stage 2 SATS. When the children have completed this homework they will show Miss Stallion their Home/school diary which should have three comments in from their parent/guardian. If they have 3 comments and signatures stating that they read with an adult 3 times that week they will get a ark on the lass reading chart. The person with the most marks will win a prize at the end of each half term!

Maths - 1 set per week (Wednesday), they will also need to know their times tables up to 12 x 12

Spelling - 10 spellings per week.  Test every Friday - some of these will be common frequency words that the children do not always spell accurately

Literacy/SPAG - 1 piece per week (Wednesday)

Topic– 1 piece every week (personal learning log)

The ‘learning log’ is a piece of individual homework when your child may be imaginative, creative and resourceful in order to produce various pieces of work.  Children will be given around 9 tasks to complete for the half term at the start of each half term, these tasks are done at your child's leisure and the expectation is that their is 1 done per week, at the end of the half term your child will bring their learning log into class and they will share the work that they have completed with their peers they will then be collected in and marked.

Children will need PE or games kit throughout the week, this should include footwear for both indoors and outdoors. 

  • Blue or Black shorts

  • White T shirt

  • Jogging bottoms for outdoor PE

  • Change of socks - sweaty socks smell after PE
