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.

Zarah – is confident using the laptops and using her own logins for the computer and purple mash. She is often found helping others without being asked. She is a fantastic helper in all ICT lessons.

Kingfishers

Mustafa and Ayana who both worked on Purple Mash to create a block graph showing the most popular fruits in class. They followed instructions and completed the task all by themselves.

Puffins

Hassan has shown a great understanding of coding across Autumn term 1. He can solve problems quickly and easily. Hassan has shown great teamwork in computing. Hassan takes it upon himself to go and support his peers if they are struggling. He thoroughly enjoys this area of his learning, and it is safe to say he is better than his teacher.

Alisha has shown great resilience with her computing skills over Autumn term 1. She has persisted in making sure she has used the correct algorithm and has demonstrated an ongoing commitment which has enabled her to move onto new challenges.

Pelicans

Connor for greatly improving his ability to log on and select a program. Connor has worked extremely hard to log onto Purple Mash and his Bug Club program.

Regina for some excellent coding work with the help of Purple Mash! Regina has followed instructions and completed some excellent coding and problem solving work!

Haadiyah sometimes find computing a bit challenging.  Previously she would put her hand up and ask for help quite a lot but she is becoming quite skilled at de-bugging and checking over the coding that she inputted to make sure the challenges are completed.

Eagles

Bilal and Warren – both these children try their very best in computing.  The curriculum in year 6 is very challenging and children need to be able to check their work very carefully to ensure that the correct information has been inputted, which then enables the programme to do what they want it to.  These 2 boys will always do this and are a source of knowledge for other children in the class.
