When work is complete my pupils take themselves off to the challenge zone. Last year I would see them working away ‘in the zone’ and smile, but I didn’t track it. This year, I intend to do so by providing a stamp in the zone. They will stamp their book and say which activities they did. Why bother doing this? Because it will help me track those quick completers who may need more in depth work or less support/structure in their everyday assignments.
I use a custom made loyalty stamp which is very small. It will hang by a short chain from a cupboard handle in the challenge zone. The pupils will be trained to stamp their book when they enter ‘the zone’.
