How do we celebrate achievement at The Brook
We have so many ways for celebrating achievement here at the Brook that it would be impossible to list them all. Below are some of the main ways.
In the classroom:
Children receive stickers for working hard.
Each class has a class achievement award. Every time they do something fabulous such as being enthusiastic learners or brilliant ambassadors for the school, they earn a token. This is the animal for their class. Once they have collected 15 tokens, the class vote on what type of reward they would like. This could be a party, a disco, a movie with popcorn or a trip to the park. This helps the classes work together to achieve a reward.
Sparkly Fish Award:
This is for keeping the Sparkly Rights. It is handed out during our Celebration assembly on a Friday. Parents are notified by text and a whisper in the ear from the class teacher and are invited to attend. We keep it a secret from the child until the assembly. They receive a fish which they decorate to go on our board, they have a certificate and a sticker.
Children are sent to Miss Dowley when they have worked extra hard or done something amazing. They then receive one of her super stickers.
We encourage the children to keep the cloakrooms tidy by awarding a sticker each week for the tidiest cloakroom. These are counted up each term and the classes or classes that have the most, get to go to Waterlea as a treat.
Billy Bear is Miss Dowley’s award. He is given to children who have worked hard or done something extraordinary or brave both inside and outside of school. So don’t forget to let Miss Dowley know if your child was player of the match, swam 25 metres or slept for the first time without a light on.
We use this time to celebrate children’s achievements outside of school. If your child has received an award or certificate, please bring it in on a Monday and Miss Dowley will share it with the school in assembly.
At the end of the academic year, children with 100% attendance receive a certificate celebrating this.
