Celebration Assembly

Celebration Assembly

Every Friday we have a celebration assembly for all children in EYFS and KS1. During this assembly, a member of each class is awarded with the ‘Shine’ award, ‘Awesome Author’ award and ‘WISKA’ award. Each week the class teachers nominate children to receive the ‘Shine’ award and ‘Awesome Author’ award.

‘Shine’ award

The ‘Shine’ award is presented to children who have shown an exceptional commitment to behaviour that week. They may have been excellent listeners who have supported their peers. The children may have shown empathy towards their peers or may have shown a great commitment to behaviour for learning. It could be a multitude of reasons! Our ‘Shine’ awards are shiny, glittery balls with the individual children’s names written on. These hang on our shiny tree in the hall and are celebrated throughout the week. After they have been on display for a week, the children can then take their shiny award home to share with their family.

‘Awesome Author’ award

Our ‘Awesome Authors’ are for those children who have worked particularly hard on their writing that week. These children have been working towards their individual targets and are always keen to share how they have particularly shone in their writing that week. This is a badge that the children proudly wear.

WISKA award

‘WISKA’ (Willesborough Infant School Kindness Award) awards are linked to lunchtimes. Every day the Midday Leader awards children who have been particularly kind and polite during lunchtime with a raffle ticket. These raffle tickets are collected throughout the week and during our celebration assembly the raffle is drawn to see which children have won the WISKA award. This is a badge that the children proudly wear.

Mini Midday Award

Alongside these awards, we have a special ‘Mini Midday Award’ for year two children. Throughout the year all of our year two children have the opportunity to be ‘Mini Middays’. When your child is a Mini Midday they have a responsible job to undertake at lunchtime and even wear their own uniforms, just like our Midday Leaders! Mini Middays help the children in EYFS and Year 1 to cut up their food if they are having difficulty, support them in making choices about their puddings and many other jobs. At the end of the term they are presented with their Mini Midday award which is a badge that they proudly wear.  

Attendance Ted and Punctuality Pup

Punctuality Pup and Attendance Ted are awarded to the classes with the best attendance and punctuality every week in our Friday Celebration Assembly. This is always a cheer when the awards are announced and Ted enjoys sharing his weekly diary with the children.
