Announcing the 2019 Arts Awards Nominees... — The Arts Council of Rockland

Hello, brilliant Lawford Mead pupils,

I am very sad and sorry that we can’t all be in school together to start 2021. You worked so hard in the Autumn term and showed our school values throughout. I know many of us will be feeling frustrated, but we all need to take care, be safe and look after each other. Being back in school together when the time comes is something we can all look forward to.

Until we are all back together, the teachers are going to be working very hard to provide the best learning activities for you to complete at home. It is very important you keep learning. Teachers in Reception and Nursery will use Tapestry to communicate with adults about learning activities. Teachers in Years 1 to 6 will use the year group blogs. Please ask your adults at home to help you use Seesaw (or Tapestry for Reception and Nursery) to share your learning with teachers. There will also be an opportunity to see teachers and your friends on Zoom each day.

I will get back to doing my weekly assembly videos. You can ask your adults to nominate you for an assembly award! Adults just need to leave a comment below my blog post each week (including this one, see below!) to say which award they think you deserve and why. I will try to mention all our nominees in each assembly video and there are no limits to how many times you can be nominated and given a ‘shout out’!

The awards are:

  • A Head of School award for showing our school values of PASSION, INTEGRITY, RESPECT, ASPIRATION or RESILIENCE when learning at home.
  • A Reader or Writer of the Week award for showing the values in your reading or writing.
  • A Sports Personality of the Week award for showing the values in PE, sport and exercise.
  • A Jackie Johnson Award for good manners, kindness and helping out around the house.

Can you prove to your adults that you deserve an award nomination each week? The assembly videos will be posted on the website on Friday afternoons. I can’t wait to hear about what you are achieving and how proud you are making everyone at home.

Mr Poyton

P.S. Adults, please use your child’s first name only, along with their year group or class name, when nominating in the comments section. Thank you. Get your nominations in by Thursday lunchtime each week.
