Meeters & Greeters
Written by Jacob, Maiyako, Ava, Cleo, Olly, Benjamin, Henry, Sophia, Christina and Shaunak
In our role as a Meeter and Greeter, it is our aim to:
* welcome new people in to our school
* welcome new children and their parents to our school before they start
* show visitors around the school and how we make it a fun place for people to learn
* pick out the key features that make our school different to other schools
* look after any new children that join our class
* be smart and lead by example
Children in Years 1-6 that are interested in this role, have to fill in an application form sharing three words to describe themselves, who they are, their interests and why they would like the job. Class teachers choose the best two applications to represent their class. The chosen two have their photos placed in the front entrance of school and get presented with Meeter and Greeter badges so they can be easily identified around school. We wear these proudly!
We have lots of visitors to our school. Some that are interested in what goes on here and some that would like to see if they like the school for their children. When we spot a visitor entering our classroom (with Mrs Davies or Mr Cloke), we stop what we are doing and introduce ourselves, our teachers and tell them what we are doing in our class. We show the visitor our very best work that we are proud of and answer any questions they have.We take our time and are especially caring and respectful.
We really enjoy reading and love the work we are doing on our class text, 'Private Peaceful'.
When a visitor leaves Birchwood, we hope they know lots of information about what goes on here. We hope that if they have children with them, and are looking for a place at our school, that are so impressed they choose us! We hope when we get to welcome newspaper reporters, that they recognise the great work we are doing and write an article to tell the County about our outstanding school. Ultimately, we hope every visitor leaves Birchwood with a large smile!
