In the Juniors, all the pupils belong to a House team. They are named after the rivers in Sheffield and are each given a colour.
Each week pupils work hard in lessons and at lunch times to earn House Points for their team which are then totalled in a weekly assembly. Boats are moved along the 'House River' accordingly and towards the end of each term, one House is named overall winner and get to experience an exciting prize.
As well as working for House points, the Juniors compete in a range of sports and arts events in their Houses.
Our Year 1's and 2's have also now started their own House Point system. Pupils can earn House Points for showing positive learning behaviours and good work. Each week they have a House Point Assembly and at the end of each term the winning team receive a treat. Next year we are looking at moving the system forward to include more House activities joining in with KS2.
PORTER are leading the way in our first House Competition for 2019/20. House Arts was enjoyed by all pupils from Y1-Y6. Every pupil participated in art activities and the House Captains made the difficult job of selecting just one entry per year group. We all then enjoyed an afternoon of watching and listening to the Y2's play a recorder piece, the year 3 and 4's singing and year 5 and 6 dancing. This year's theme was, 'Magic, Mystery and Make-Believe' and all participants showed their courage, skill and talent performing in front of an audience.
SHEAF win the house point trophy in KS2 and chose a disco for their treat.
