It's really appropriate to begin with this lovely message from Jacob and James Wright's Mum to kick off our weekends!
"I think all the children deserve recognition for the recent lockdown, homeschool and adapting to our new world with COVID-19 they have all been amazing!"
To recognise this, Jacob and James' mum bought them a lockdown medal in the summer holiday, for being amazing during lockdown and for working so hard with their homeschooling. They are happy to be back at school and their mum said this:
"All the staff have help them settle back in and they are loving it, even though it’s a little different."
The teachers are running our normal award system based on the amount of Dojos children get. You can follow this at home on your Dojo App. Here is a reminder of the awards:
100 Dojos - Award given out in class - this is a colourful certificate
250 Dojos - The children get a personalised Dojo bookmark which is usually presented at the monthly assemblies.
500 Dojos - The children get a personalised badge which they are allowed to wear on their school uniform.
750 Dojos - The children are awarded with a book in Assembly.
1000 Dojos - The children are awarded with a framed certificate in Assembly and they are also eligible for the whole school shields at the end of the year.
We are not far enough into the school year to see these awards yet but watch this space! This Assembly will replace the big monthly ones in the hall for the time being. Mrs. White and Mrs. Coghlan will deliver awards through the classroom door!
However! Zara from year 5 has managed to get 13 dojos since being back at school! Incredible! Also, Sophie and Oskar from Year 6 both have 8 Dojos - they have been superstars this week and have worked incredibly hard.
We can't sing in school at the moment but it's still important for us to remember our birthday children! I wonder if there's a sign language version we can use?
Olly-Ray from Year 2 has a birthday today! Happy birthday Olly-Ray!
