Rainbow challenge update
As the children mature and classroom practice develops, we can move learning on to new heights. Therefore, we are moving away from closed task rainbow rewards (ie- do this activity to get a rainbow stick) to a more open ended way of rewarding sticks.
What does this mean in practice?
In the classroom, we have dinosaurs to represent the early years ‘Characteristics of Effective Learning.’ We will now be using these as a means to focus learning and award rainbow sticks.
Next week the children will be expected to learn in the areas but will not need to carry out specific tasks, rather be spotted showing the effective learning skills chosen. The children have chosen the below skills to develop;
- Sharing by being a ‘Shareoynx’
- Taking on roles and pretending ‘Pretendosaurus’
- Solving problems ‘Solveosaurus’.
