New Student Speak Progressions
This term all classes have worked really hard and provided their ideas to create ‘student speak’ Indicators. Here are a couple of examples below:
Under the Responsibility Competency, one of the indicators is Prepare, and the student speak version is: I can make sure that I am ready for learning.
Under the Respect Competency, one of the indicators is Appreciate, and the student speak version is: I can value other people and their ideas.
Now that all classes have had their voice in creating the ‘student speak’ indicators, I am working on creating Success Lists, so students can set goals and track progress in their new Progression Books!
Competency Focus of the Fortnight
We will now be having a Competency Focus of the Fortnight!
Starting term 1, week three, each fortnight there will be a competency focus every two weeks (see image below for the term 1 schedule).
Teachers and Peer mediators will be providing learning opportunities around this focus throughout the fortnight. There will be fun activities, videos and quotes in the Daily Notices, lessons in class and items at Assembly! Our first focus starts in week 3 and it is Responsibility - Prepare.
Competency bands are still a big deal at Coatesville School, but how students earn them has changed.
Value Bands are such a privilege to earn! If a student Completes a Success List for a competency (e.g. Responsibility) and are consistently showing all indicators, and this has been signed off on their Success List by their class teacher, they will be presented the band for that Competency at school Assembly - parents will be informed by class teachers if this is going to happen.
