Values Homework from Miss Turner
Our value this half term is the concept of respect.
It is defined as a feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements.
Who do the children respect? What do the children respect? What is self-respect? Why is it important? Why is respect a good value to follow?
Your challenge is to choose one person that you greatly respect. It can be a public figure or someone in your family circle or friends. Tell me about that person and why you respect them so much. You can write a poem about them, create a piece of art work that represents them, write a song or a straightforward biography. You can even video yourselves discussing the person if you like!
You have three weeks to complete this challenge….
All entries are worth 20 dojos but the winner will receive 100 dojos and will be published on the website and newsletter.
Completed entries to be uploaded on to Dojo Portfolio or emailed in to email@example.com by Monday 6th July.
The BBC ten pieces composer is Edward Elgar - Enigma Variations.
I've tweaked how Dojo points are awarded in order to move more in line with what other classes are doing and to better reward all of your super hard work!
Home Learning on Dojo
For each piece of home learning posted onto Dojo (either by photo or video) I will award Dojo points. Check each home learning activity to see how many points it will earn.
I will award 5 dojos for every reply to a question or suggestion made by myself, Miss Turner, Mrs Ashton or another member of staff.
For each complete 30 minutes spent on Mathletics each week, I will award 5 Dojos. Children can earn certificates too. To get a Bronze Certificate, they need to earn 1000 points in a week. To get a Silver Certificate, they need to earn 5 bronze certificates and to get a Gold Certificate, they need to earn 4 Silver Certificates. Some children have already earned certificates earlier in the year and are already on the road to Gold - I will send these certificates out to parents. For any certificates earned during the home learning period, I will award 10 Dojos for each Bronze, 20 Dojos for each Silver and 40 Dojos for each Gold!
Reading Eggs/Reading Eggspress
For each complete 30 minutes spent on Reading Eggs/Reading Eggspress each week, I will award 5 Dojos. Children can earn medals too. To get a Bronze Medal, they need to earn 1000 points in a week. To get a Silver Medal, they need to earn 5 bronze Medals and to get a Gold Medal, they need to earn 3 Silver Medals. There are no certificates to print for these awards. Heidi is the only child who has already earned her 1st Bronze Medal earlier in the year. For any medals earned during the home learning period, I will award 10 Dojos for each Bronze, 20 Dojos for each Silver and 40 Dojos for each Gold!
There is no data available on TT Rockstars which tells me how long each child has spent on TT Rockstars in a week. Instead, I'll be awarding 1 dojo every time your child goes up a level.
Dojos for Mathletics, Reading Eggs and TT Rockstars will be added on Sunday evenings ready for a fresh start on Monday.
Dojos from Miss Turner
Miss Turner will award Dojo points for the following:
The six children with the most Dojos at the end of each week will earn a certificate and some golden time at home. The child who earns the most Dojos will be featured in the weekly newsletter and will be awarded a special prize from Miss Turner when we return to school!
