Its Not Easy Being Green: And Other Things to Consider by Jim HensonA collection of wise and witty quotes from and inspired by Jim Henson similar in format to The World According to Mister Rogers. When I was young, it was my ambition to be one of the people who made a difference in this world. My hope is to leave the world a little better for my having been there. Its a wonderful life and I love it. Jim Henson Yeah, well, Ive got a dream too. But its about singing and dancing and making people happy. Thats the kind of dream that gets better the more people you share it with. And, well, Ive found a whole bunch of friends who have the same dream. And, it kind of makes us like a family.

Good to be Green/ School Rules
Congratulations to all our 'Great to be Gold' winners so far. Who will be the next lucky winner? I t's 'Good to be Green' but it's also 'Great to be Gold'. This is the what all children in the school are aiming towards. What are the teachers looking for this week? Which school value is our focus?
Our Golden Rules help children to understand how to behave in school. Every child starts their day on a positive note with a green card displayed in their pocket of the Class Chart. If they are still on Green by the end of the day, the child is awarded a Green certificate. Children who consistently do the right thing all year are rewarded at our Good to be Green award ceremony in the Summer term. The warning gives the child the opportunity to reflect, consider and review their behaviour. Sometimes, the thought of moving a child onto a Red Consequence Card is enough to encourage them to behave appropriately.
The school behaviour system is made up of 4 parts and is known as Good to be Green. Fully green, half turned, yellow and red. In this blog you will be told how each part works and how you get to that card.
It allows for recognition for pupils who behave appropriately, while keeping track of pupils who find it harder to meet the schools behaviour code. It is a fair and consistent approach and ensures that pupils know the rules and behaviour expected in school regardless of what classroom they are in or who is teaching them. This outlines the behaviour reward system which we have introduced to reinforce our Behaviour Policy. We believe that children should develop good discipline through positive encouragement and instruction whilst understanding their rights and responsibilities within the school setting. All pupils have the right to feel safe at school; the right to learn and the right to be respected and to have fair treatment.
This is a very visual approach and has an immediate impact with pupils. Display in the classroom. Click here for more information. Display in the classroom A good to be green card holder is displayed in every class. All pupils start each week with a green card in their name holder. We expect all pupils to behave well in school throughout the day. Their card remains green to show good behaviour.
