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.

We recently looked into Greek Theatre and Ella made a fantastic information lap book detailing different parts of the Theatre and how it has influenced the plays and shows we have today.

We looked at Greek vases and tried to infer what the paintings were showing us, Rayaan had a keen eye and discussed the sports that they were showing us in relation to the Ancient Greek Olympics.
