Otter Class Information

What is it like in Otter Class?

How do we celebrate our children’s achievements?

Each week, we celebrate the hard work and efforts of all our children through Friday Celebration Assembly. Teachers identify children who have either made progress towards targets, worked consistently hard or completed an outstanding piece of work to become the ‘star of the week’.

Through our house system, all children, in every class can earn house points which go towards an individual awards certificate. The house that earns the most number of points each term receives a ‘House Reward’.

A a class reward we have a pasta in the jar system. When the whole class does something grand pasta gets put in the jar and when the jar is full we get a class reward.

We are very keen in Otter class to see positive behaviour, children receive lots of verbal praise for this.


What do I need to bring to school? 
You will need: a named lunchbox, water bottle, a healthy snack and a waterproof coat. You will not need any other equipment as this will be provided for you. We are really trying to reduce the amount of items being brought into school. 
Our first PE day will be on Friday 4th September. You need to wear your PE kit to school each time we have PE. 
PE kit: red t-shirt, black shorts/tracksuit bottoms, trainers/daps and New Close jumper/cardigan (no hoodies please as kit will be worn all day).
