Glasshouses CP School. Houses 2017
In Glasshouses, we have introduced a ‘House’ system.
The ‘House’ system is a whole school initiative. It allows the children to be part of a small community within the whole school setting.
There are seven ‘Houses’ within the school. The names of the house are voted for and decided by the children at the start of the year.
The sorting hat
Each ‘House’ contains a mixture of children from all year groups.The children are sorted in to a ‘House’ using a sorting hat. The sorting hat is very clever as it can sort siblings in to the same ‘House’ as the older brother or sister.
Through the year the children will be taken in to their ‘House’ groups and set challenges. The challenges are designed to develop social and communication skills.
The children will represent their ‘House’ on Sports Day. The children will be encouraged to wear their ‘House’ colours and take part in the activities to get points for the ‘House’. At the end of the Sports Days all the points will be combined to announce an overall ‘House’ champion and another Cup is presented.
Children in Year 6 are selected by their ‘house’ to become role models as ‘house’ captains. They have a high profile within the school and are a point of reference for the younger children in the playgrounds, Dining Hall and Assemblies. . They also represent their ‘house’ during the celebration assembly where they can be present the ‘House cup’.
Who has won the House Cup this week?
Each week the House scores will be collected up by the captains and reported and then combined to produce and overall winner of the week.
