We celebrate the achievements of children here at Halfway Junior School in lots of different ways.
We believe that children should be rewarded for efforts in learning and every child has the opportunity to achieve one of our Thinking Certificates in every lesson.
Every week we have a ‘Celebration’ assembly where we share all of the amazing learning that has happened in the week. During the assembly two children from each class are awarded ‘Star of the Week’ for achieving our weekly learning focus.
We also count up the Golden Tokens that have been awarded that week. Golden Tokens are awarded to children for being good Halfway Learners and choosing to do the right thing. For more information about this click here.
Each week we celebrate the achievements of our Golden Child, who is nominated from each class. During the week the Golden Child is encouraged to demonstrate the Halfway Learner Value of the week. When it is your child’s turn you will be sent a text message to tell you they are their classes Golden Child for the following week and invited to join us in celebrating their successes in Celebration Assembly.
We also take great pride in the fact that so many of us continue our learning outside of school.
