Reward System


Good evening all,

I am just taking this time to inform you of changes which are occurring in KS2 with regards to the reward systems in class. The ‘Smiley’ chart has now been discontinued and is being replaced by a merit system.

From Monday the children will all be provided with a Bronze bookmark. It is their job to fill this bookmark with ten bronze stickers through listening to instructions, being polite and well-mannered and displaying excellent work in all areas of the curriculum. Furthermore, should your child move up a level in their times table challenge or improve their weekly spelling score they will be rewarded with 2 stickers also.

When their bookmark is full it will be exchanged for a bronze star, which the children must look after, and a new bookmark. The process will then repeat itself until they have filled 5 bronze bookmarks, at which point they will be rewarded with their bronze certificate and badge. Once everyone in the class has earned their bronze status, we will have our bronze party as usual. The process will then repeat itself through the silver and gold stages.

Should you have any questions concerning this new system, please do not hesitate to come into school for a chat.

Good luck Year 4 in collecting those stars and stickers.
