Gold Book

gold-book

Every Friday morning each site holds a very special Gold Book Assembly.

This is a time for us to come together to celebrate the successes from the week gone by and share some of the learning we have been doing in our classes.

As part of this assembly, we share the names of the children that have been chosen to be in the Gold Book. Each Class Teacher chooses two children from their class who have had a particularly good week. For example, a child could be chosen because they have been very polite or helpful. They may also be chosen for a specific piece of work or because they have been a really good friend.

She too has produced an excellent diary entry. In year 6 we have been fortunate enough to be working with a PE teacher from Park Land Secondary School. He has told me that he loves coming to our school because our year 6 pupils are incredibly polite, extremely enthusiastic and tremendously helpful. Amaya is a pupil who he constantly talks about for these reasons. She is a real credit to our class and school: an excellent role model. Well done – keep it up!!
