Achievement Awards

P4C

 

Through adopting and teaching P4C we encourage children to think critically, creatively, collaboratively and caringly, and we help children to become lifelong learners. At Lee-on-the-Solent Junior School we have achieved the Bronze Award. This means that we have built a commuity of enquiry for our pupils and we are developing their philosophical thinking. We have worked hard to improve childrens' questioning and identification of key concepts, and we regularly review and evaluate our practice. We are now working towards achieving the Silver Award.

 

Trailblazer

 

Trailblazer is an exciting award scheme which promotes children’s learning experiences outside the classroom. The scheme enables us to take part in a wide range of activities of all different sizes including; the whole school, a year group, a class or a small group. The different learning experiences we complete outdoors work towards different awards of achievement. These range from a Green award (40 hours) all the way to Platinum (150 hours).

 

The scheme links to many aspects of the National Curriculum and also helps children to develop a number of key skills such as collaboration, aspiration and perseverance.

 

Come back soon to find out about some of the exciting things we have been doing!

 

Healthy Schools

 

Lee on the Solent Junior School is proud to have been awarded the Healthy Schools status. We encourage the children to make healthy dietary choices, drink plenty of water, exercise regularly and to take care of their emotional well being. At breaktimes, children bring in a piece of fruit or vegetable for their snack. Each Year Group has a water fountain situated nearby, enabling the children to fill their water bottles as needed.

 

At Lee-on-the-Solent Junior School, we are very fortunate to have a selection of equipment for the children to use at lunch times including skipping ropes, scooters, cricket equipment and basketballs. Some pupils have been trained as Play Monitors to help keep each other as active as possible.

 

In January, the school had a very successful Healthy Schools day where children worked in house teams with different teachers. The activities included trying new fruits and vegetables, racing on go-carts, yoga and making wraps.
