What is the theme of our houses?
Our house point system at Wainscott Primary School has continued our class theme of nature and our environment. We have chosen four influential and outstanding role models, who have contributed hugely to world conservation.
Born in 1809 in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, Darwin was fascinated by the natural world from a young age. Growing up he was an avid reader of nature books and devoted his spare time to exploring the fields and woodlands around his home, collecting plants and insects. He is celebrated as one the greatest British scientists who ever lived.
Fun fact - Darwin wanted to be a doctor, but could not stand the sight of blood.
Sir David Frederick Attenborough
(born May 8, 1926, London, England), English broadcaster, writer, and naturalist noted for his innovative educational television programs, especially the nine-part Life series.
Fun fact - he does not own a car as he has never passed his driving test.
Considered to be the world's foremost expert on chimpanzees. She is best known for her 60-year study of social and family interactions of wild chimpanzees at Gombe Stream National Park in Tanzania, where she witnessed human-like behaviours amongst chimpanzees, including armed conflict.
Fun fact - A stuffed animal changed her life, Jane met her first chimpanzee on her first birthday. From that day forward, the stuffed ape named Jubilee accompanied her on every adventure, inspiring the love of animals that would one day shift our views on animal intelligence.
Also known as Birdgirl, is a British Bangladeshi ornithologist and campaigner for equal rights. She has travelled all her life, visiting all seven continents when she was 13 years old, giving her a global perspective on conservation and the needs of indigenous peoples. She writes posts about birding, nature, stopping climate breakdown, conservation and stopping species loss, other environmental issues and racism from around the world. In February 2020, she received an honorary doctorate in science from the University of Bristol, and is said to be the youngest British person to receive such an award.
Fun fact - The person she would most like to meet is David Attenborough.
What will pupils at Wainscott Primary School be awarded house points for?
'Pupils at Wainscott Primary School will be awarded house points by any member of staff for work, effort or attitude that exceeds their normal expectations.'
This can be in the classroom, playground, PE and even school work done at home.
Rewarding our pupils
At the end of each term, every pupil in the house with the highest total of points will be rewarded.
Also the winning team each term will have their coloured ribbons tied to our house trophy at the front of the school.
This gives every house six chances every year to be term champions. At the end of term 6, the house with the highest accumulated total throughout the year, will be declared house champions.
