House points and attendance awards

House Points

Our school is divided into 4 Houses: Vikings, Romans, Egyptians and Greeks. The Houses were chosen following a naming competition. Brothers and sisters are placed in the same House when they join our school. Each week the children's Dojo points are collected to see which House has won. A House Trophy is then presented to the House Captain in Friday's Celebration Assembly, and the House colours changed. House colours are:

 

Vikings  red yellow                   Dragon logo   Viking House's dragon logo

Romans purple white                                                     Eagle logo        Roman House's eagle logo

Egyptians blue gold           Cat goddess logo   Egyptian House's cat logo

Greeks yellow black                                          Winged horse logo        Greek House's winged horse logo

For special occasions - sports day, Christmas craft day, marble jar treats, Comic Relief - the children work in their houses so that siblings can be together and older children can support younger ones. This develops different friendships and social skills, and is a time to which the children look forward.  It also means parents only have to cheer for one House on Sports Day!

Our Morley Blue winners 2016-17

 

The Marble Jar

 

The marble jar rewards whole school achievement such as excellent behaviour in class, everyone working really hard, good behaviour on school visits etc. It has to be the whole class or school achieving. Marbles are added each week, and when the jar is full, the children have earned a whole school treat. These have included a circus day, learning French skipping with a specialist coach, a visit from the owl man (complete with a host of owls), ice creams for everyone, an artist for a day, a picnic out of school. Children are asked for their hopes each time we fill the jar, so please let us know if you are aware of something they would like to do.

Attendance rewards

 

Attendance is also calculated weekly for each class, and a trophy presented in Friday's celebration Assembly. A chart shows how many times each class has won the trophy each term.

 

Individual attendance is calculated termly and a letter sent home to parents detailing their child's attendance. Children with 100% attendance have their name displayed on our attendance display, and those with over 95% (bronze), 98% (silver) and 100% (gold) are listed on their class attendance charts.
