Reading as much as possible will really help your child’s progress at school. For their learning passport they must have read three times a week all term. It is very important that they understand what they are reading a few minutes spent asking questions about what has been read helps children to develop comprehension skills which are vital to their education. We also, have a competition running in school each week. The number of times each child in the class each week is added up and the class that has read the most receives a prize in our Star Assembly on a Friday afternoon.
Ambassador Awards 2022-2023
This year we will continue with the Ambassador Awards that recognise 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:
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!
