At Coppice, we use Golden Time as a weekly reward in accordance with our Good to be Green system.
The aim is to show children that 'it's good to be green'. In return, the ones who have impressed us with their behaviour all week receive fifteen minutes of Golden Time. The children can bring in their own toys or use the ones available within the classroom. Sometimes, teachers might have children using laptops, playing football matches or simply colouring in the classroom. These are very much child lead activities to encourage a good level of Independence.
Golden Time has an important place at Coppice, as it is used to reward the children who are showing the right behaviour and making sensible choices.
