What is it?
Balladen Badges is inspired by the idea of badge work found in the Cubs, Scouts, Brownies etc. We recognise the motivation this can give to children and have adapted the system for use in our school. Children elect to work towards a particular badge (it is a voluntary scheme) and on completion have their work checked. The children will receive their badge from the Headteacher in assembly. It is expected that parents may wish to help their children complete their work satisfactorily, indeed we see this as one of the advantages of the scheme.
Why do It ?
Which badges can I work for?
Your tasks will vary depending on which year you are in. You will complete either the infant, lower junior or upper junior badge for the following areas:
Animal Lover (Mrs Winstanley)
Bookworm (Mrs Rushton)
Gardening (Mrs Schofield)
Helping Hands (Mrs Hopkins)
Lego Quest (Mr Askew)
(The name in brackets shows the member of staff that will be marking your work)
How do I do it?
Collect your badge booklet from the Balladen Badge display in school or print the booklet off from our school website. When you have completed the tasks, take it into class or hand it into the office.
Wait to receive your Balladen Badge in Friday celebration assembly.
