WELL DONE TO ALL THESE CHILDREN!
We focus on our seven Core Values - Friendship, Respect, Creativity, Resilience, Aspiration, Enthusiasm and Self-Esteem, incorporating the British Values and linking directly with the children’s 'Gem Learning Behaviours'.
As a way of enabling all of our pupils to develop into successful learners, with the attitudes, attributes and skills needed for life, we have developed our 'Gem Powers' as the basis for our learning behaviours:
We have 7 gems and each one represents a key learning attitude or skill:
Ruby Power - this is achieved by being positive and helpful to others. Smiling and being friendly to others, encouraging, praising and supporting others in their learning, and showing good attention to the ideas of others helps you to gain lots of this power!
Topaz Power - this gem helps us to work well within a class – we know when to take turns, when to work with others or alone and how to ask questions and share our learning. You achieve this gem by using the skills of collaboration and group learning. Playing an active part within a team and showing respect for the views of others are key factors.
Diamond Power - this is gained by taking responsibility for solving your own problems, having ownership over your learning and setting yourself goals or next steps. By doing this, you make your brain grow and your learning starts to sparkle!
Emerald Power - this one is key for our school. To achieve this, you need to be willing to take risks with your learning, knowing that learning new things is not easy and that mistakes might happen. Being resilient enough to pick yourself up and try again is what makes our learners dazzle in green! Get that bouncebackability!
Sapphire Power - you can gain lots of this power by staying focused on your learning task and ignoring the 'monster' distractions. Push yourself to achieve your goals without being distracted and you will be shimmering in blue!
Azurite Power - this power works best when you are motivated to learn; be keen and show enthusiasm for learning new things and be positive about all learning experiences. By being enthusiastic, this can help you to enjoy your time in school even more. Start sparkling in deep blue!
Amethyst Power - build your own self-esteem to make your purple power shine. Share your work with others and be gracious when you are praised. Know what you are good at and be proud of your achievements. You can also show pride in learning by being a responsible, organised learner.
The children earn Gem stickers and badges as they develop these learning skills and behaviours. Showing strong gem powers also earns gems towards a whole class collection. We celebrate this in class and in Celebration Assemblies each week.
