Squirrel Class Information

What is it like in Squirrel 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’.

As a class the children are working towards earning golden tickets. Each golden ticket is worth 5 minutes of golden time each Friday afternoon. This encourages the children to work as a class and encourage each other to follow expected behaviours. 

We are very keen in Squirrel class to see positive behaviour, children receive lots of verbal praise and stickers 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. Please make sure you have your reading book in school everyday.
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. In KS1 children are entitled to free fruit and vegetables; these are available each snack time. 
Children are required to wear their PE kit to school each Friday

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).
