Goldfinch Bookworms

Simply by reading regularly the children can gain points towards the Bookworm awards of Bronze, Silver and Gold. All they need to do is read to a grown up at home to receive a signature in their books, these then build up to the number required for each award. When they have enough points they will be given their certificate in our Celebration Assembly and also be able to place their own bookworm on the special Bookworm notice board. As of 19/11/2021 we have almost all reached Bronze!


Goldfinch Times Tables Challenge

The year 2 Goldfinches are trying to learn and practise their 2, 5, 10 and 3 times tables at home to use regularly in school.

The year 1 Goldfinches will be encouraged to count in 2s 5s and 10s, knowing their 2 times table by the time they finish Year 1 .


Goldfinch Rock Stars

The children can use their knowledge of the times tables they are learning to become 'Rock Stars'. They can do this by using the Rock Star times tables website or app on you mobile phone. They can then take their place on the Rock Star leader board in school.
