Class Dojo- What is it? 


Class Dojo is used across school as a positive reward system. Every child in Willow Class has an avatar in the form of a monster. Children earn these points or ‘dojos’ in various ways, for example- using manners unprompted, helping a friend, holding a door open, showing compassion/kindness and ‘having a go’. Every time a dojo is added, it creates a running total inside a green circle beside their egg/avatar. We leave the dojo system open on the interactive board when not in use, so children can add their own dojos as rewarded by an adult. Any adult in school can gift dojos to children and we have many conversations about the importance of being honest and only putting dojos on when they have been genuinely awarded.
