We are a skills based school, the classes designed our own skills square which evidences the skills we are focusing on as a school. Each term the children work on applying and developing these skills. The children are all aware of all these skills and how they support us to be a good learners. They refer to them when discussing their learning. Over the course of a term they can collect stickers for each skill and receive, in our achievement assembly on Friday mornings, their Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum award.
- Bronze – 3 stickers (over any of the skills)
- Silver – 15 stickers(over any of the skills)
- Gold – 24 stickers (all skills covered)
- Platinum – Gold in all three terms
The Platinum award will be something exciting at the end of the year as it will take a lot of hard work and determination to achieve.
We have worked together to come up with Featherstone Wood's Characteristics of a learner and all the children are working towards becoming independent in these. Please click below to see how these skills develop accross the key stages.
