"Pupils are proud of their school. Their good behaviour and positive attitudes make a strong contribution to their success."
Ofsted January 2013
Here at Mackie Hill we have many ways to celebrate children's achievement and effort throughout school.
VIP Party- The children who have stayed on a green card the whole half- term are put into a draw to join Mrs Elliott's Headteacher's VIP Party. All children who remain on a green card all half term will get a dip in the class prize bucket.
Bucket Fillers- Each table in each class have a bucket where they can earn bucket tokens for their team by 'filling someone else' bucket'. This could be by an act of kindness, good manners or doing special jobs. At the end of each week the table with the most bucket tokens also wins a dip in the prize bucket.
Mackie's Marvellous Mind- This is a 'star of the week' style certificate where teachers choose one child from each class who has done something extra special each week.
Handwriter of the Week- This is given to the child in each class who is trying their hardest to write beautifully in ALL of their books, not just their handwriting book.
Handwriter of the Term- This given to a previous 'Handwriter of the Week' winner, from that half- term. These children are awarded a special prize from Mrs Elliott for consistently neat handwriting in every book, every day.
Fine Dining- This is awarded by our Lunchtime Supervisors for children with good manners or who help in the hall at lunch. They are given the opportunity to sit at the 'Fine Dining' table with a friend as a reward.
Sports Leader Awards- Our school sports leaders who lead games at lunchtimes have chosen these children for listening, joining in and taking turns.
TT Rockstar Awards- Times Tables Rockstars is an interactive website where children use their login details to access personalised times table activities to practice their mental maths skills. After playing and achieving more children will earn certificates which will be printed out at school and celebrated. The site can be accessed from your child's class page on our website.
Each class also has smaller treats for excellent work/ effort, such as stickers, arrows, gold cards, homework points and 'homeworkopoly' which are chosen by the children during their transition morning to encourage them to keep focused during the upcoming year.
Sports Day Cup - Our Sports Day coincides with National Sports Week in the summer term.
We hold a variety of races for all key stages to build up points towards their team total.
Thank you to all our sponsors and volunteers that make Sports Day such a success every year.
