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.

Noel and Maryam – for using adventurous vocabulary when writing their quest myths. They both worked really hard this year and they always apply their knowledge for guided reading to their own writing, using features such as show not tell figurative language. They have written well structured Greek Quest Myths and have thought about the reader throughout, they were both exciting to read and I’m looking forward to reading the ending!
