Mossy Explorer is a project that we introduced back in 2014 to allow children to develop behaviour, independence and self-esteem. This proved a huge success; therefore, we relaunched this project again at the beginning of this academic year, with the aim of promoting personal development so that our children have the opportunity to grow into the best people that they can possibly be. This will be done by encouraging children to develop positive habits and virtues such as independence, hard work, community awareness and physical & mental wellbeing.
How does it work?
Each term, children will be set new Mossy Explorer Challenges: a combination of Non-Negotiable tasks that are to be completed every week and Curriculum / Personal Development tasks that are to be completed one-a-week. Children should bring this work in to their teacher each week, where it will be stored in a folder. At the end of each term, children will have the opportunity to collect together and reflect upon the work that they have completed on a Mossy Explorer Day, where they will gather together some of their biggest successes in their Mossy Explorer Knowledge Organiser.
At the end of each term, if your child has brought in the work requested of them, they will receive a Mossy Explorer Badge. Collecting the whole set throughout the year is a sign of real personal success!
