More and more of my work is focusing on lunchtimes and playtimes. Alongside my work in classrooms, assembly halls and dining halls, the playground is one place where there is often room for improvement so that all children can get the very best out of this important social and energetic time of day.
Out in the playground, many children don’t feel the strong presence of their school’s Golden Rules soooo …. we have created some lovely, very usable playground rules that anyone can use in the playground. The rules are adapted from our classroom Golden Rules and are based on key moral values:
We have two sets of 6 x A3 Playground Rules posters to give away to entrants who will be drawn at random.
a) Send us an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us why your playground needs rules.
b) Follow us on Facebook, find our “Win a set of 6 x A2 Playground Rules Posters” post, like it and tell us v briely in the comments why your playground needs rules (We are always grateful to people who like and share our page and posts :-))
Competition closes at noon on Monday 30th March 2015.
Winner’s Names: _ and _
(name to be added after close of the competition noon 30.3.15)
Terms and Conditions
One winner will be chosen at random from all Facebook and email entrants.
Winners will be chosen by putting all entries on a table with numbered rows. A member of our staff team in a different office, who cannot see the table, is telephoned and asked for a number between 1 and, say, 40 (or whoever many rows there are). If anyone enters the competition twice, they only appear on the list once. Email and Facebook entrants are muddled up together on the list and each is given equal weight.
The winners’ name will be written into this article below when he or she has been chosen. We will attempt to email winners and/or notify via Facebook but sometimes people don’t get our messages on Facebook so do check this article and the original Facebook post after the closing date to see if it’s you!
Entries via our Facebook page and by email must reach us by Friday Monday 30th March 2015 at 12 noon. One winner will be chosen at random after the closing date and time. Winners will be notified by their name going on this page, and we will email you back and/or notify via Facebook. (It is sometimes difficult to notify people via Facebook so please look for our posts.) Winners will be notified as soon as possible after the draw. However, you must claim your prize within 2 weeks of competition closure. There is no cash alternative or cash value to this offer. We will need your name and a delivery address if you are a winner!
