KS1 & KS2 Golden Time

At Crook Primary School we use Golden Time as a reward for demonstrating positive learner behaviour over the week.  Golden time is an opportunity each week for children to learn and develop a new skill which isn’t within the school curriculum.  It allows children to develop social, communication and life skills. 

Golden time is seen as a reward time to celebrate the success of a positive week in school, it is earned over the week through the school behaviour system – Dojos.  Children earn Dojos for demonstrating positive learner behaviours in class and around the school, for example, being polite, being kind, taking a risk with their learning, show resilience in their work, improving their handwriting, reading at home, show independence in solving a problem or remembering their equipment. Plus many more that the class teachers feel their children need to show.  

If children earn enough the required number of Dojos (10 dojos) over the week they will participate in Golden Time on a Friday afternoon. Children who have not earned the required number of Dojos will spend the final session with a member of staff reflecting on how they could earn enough Dojos to participate the following week.

This year Golden Time will be in classes to allow an opportunity each week for the class teacher to spend some quality time with their children outside of the curriculum. Below is a timetable of activities each year group will be participating in for Golden Time each half term.  Class teachers will advise prior to activities starting if children require special clothing bringing in to school.
