District Moderation of Writing in 2018: Good practice at Kennington C of E Academy. At the recent district writing moderation of Key Stage 2, good practice in assessing children and recording their achievements was identified by the moderators. The evidence was varied, clearly annotated, appropriate for the judgements the children were assessed at and showed their independent work. The moderators were particularly impressed by the high-quality evidence your school produced and the following comments were noted: Range of picture books that were used in Y6 produced extremely rich vocabulary.

Year 6 Buddies

Picture 1

At Kennington C.E. Academy we have Year 6 Playground Buddies who help in each of our three play areas. We also have a blue ‘Buddy Bench’ on the Top playground where the younger children can go if they would like a Buddy to support them.

Our Buddies help to promote our Core Christian Values of ‘Love and Care’, ‘Everyone is Important’, ‘Giving’, ‘Using your Talents’ and ‘Forgiveness’. The Buddies help us to achieve a friendly, calm and happy atmosphere for the children at break and at lunchtime.

The role of the playground buddy includes; teaching children to play a wider range of games, helping children to play nicely with each other, helping children to make friends, helping to resolve minor disputes, and being there as a friend to support all the other children.

We would like to introduce our 2017 Buddies who are Isabel, Emily, Sophie, Ebony, Jessica, Jasmine, Chloe, Abigail, Jagoda, Jemima, P.J, Jack, Emma-Leigh and Sienna. They each have a blue Buddy badge and they wear a blue Buddy tabard when they are on duty.
