Superpowers in Action!
Building Independence Skills – During the Autumn term the Opal Learning Zone have been challenged to make good progress with their superpower of independence. The children have been challenged to put on their own coats independently which proved tricky initially at the start of the year. However, with perseverance all of the children have made excellent progress. Some children have even mastered their coats and are able to put on the dressing up clothes without support. We will now move on to zipping up our own coats and master recognising our names.
Weardale Adventure Centre – Hi-Ho-Hi-Ho it’s off to the Adventure Centre we go! This half-term has seen the Opal Learning Zone venture to the Weardale Adventure Centre to test our Superpower of independence. The children were put through their paces as they had to complete a number of activities. The children showed excellent resilience and independence skills as they accessed an animal finding activity and managed their way through a nightline. The staff at the adventure centre commented on how well the children accessed the day, and were shocked at how independent they were.
Pupils grow, learn and thrive within the positive, nurturing learning environment at Stanhope Barrington C of E Primary School. Celebrating success and effort is an important part of creating a positive and reflective school community and links to our core Christian values (KFC).
In the Opal Learning Zone, award certificates are given weekly and include: The Ambassador Award (awarded to the pupil that stands out for demonstrating a skill linked to the Superpower), the Dojo Award (awarded to the pupil that has made the most consistent effort during the week) and the Extra Special Award (awarded to the pupil that has stood out for the right reasons such as showing kindness, academic effort and persistence). In addition, every pupil across the Learning Zones is also eligible for whole school awards. Please visit our Celebrating Success section to find out more and to see the weekly winners of each award.
