Joy Class - Year 1
Welcome to the Joy Class page!
We are Year 1 and have 24 children – 8 girls and 16 boys. Our class teacher is called Mrs Elson. Our teaching assistants are called Mrs Wilson, Mrs Matthews and Mrs Marchant.
When we are learning, we think about our learning partner rules which we came up with as a class, they are:
To work together, to listen, to share ideas and be kind, helpful and specific.
These make sure that we are working as well together as we can!
In our classroom, we have our Super Learning Powers where we earn beads. Our learning powers are Super Thinker, Super Solver, and Super Glue. We work towards these in all our lessons and are very good at collecting beads!
We also have our classroom reward system. Each morning we start the day on Blue Skies, when we behave beautifully or do a fabulous piece of learning we move up to Sunshine, Over the Rainbow and then onto the Pot of Gold. When we reach the Pot of Gold, we get a certificate and some merits.
On the other hand, if we aren’t behaving as well on a day, we get a verbal warning from one of our adults and if we repeat our behaviour we are moved down to Cloudy, Rainy and Thunder and Lightning. If we get onto Cloudy we miss one minute of our next playtime. For each step that we move down, we lose another minute.
As soon as we have had our consequence, we are straight back onto Blue Skies.
