Our School Teams
Everyone at Garrick Green Infant School is in one of our 3 school teams which are named after the 3 highest mountains of the UK:
Each team is represented by their team colour (green/red/blue) and the aim is to earn points in order to get as high up the mountain as possible, by the end of the academic year. Children can earn team points for a range of reasons such as...
- good behaviour
- representing the school at an event
- receiving their first reading book
- for good effort/trying hard
- for good manners
- for Sports Day etc
Each team has two Year 2 Team Captains who put themselves forward and are voted in at the start of each year. Team Captains get to make some decisions through the year. For example, last year they helped choose the new playground markings and talked to our caterers about the lunch menu.
At the end of the year, the winning team gets their team colours put on the trophy and their team name on the shield. The Captains choose a treat for the members of their team.
Your child will need a t-shirt in their team colour for Sports Day in the summer and for Year 1 and Year 2. Their sun hat and reading folder (which are provided by the school) will also be in their team colour.
