HI, I am a NQT and we have a whole school policy of giving out House Points for good work, good behaviour, being kind etc (basically reward anything deserving of praise). My question is, how does anyone else record their House Points? eg I often give a Maths group a HP as a reward for working independently and don't want them getting up in the middle of a lesson to go and record this themselves. In the same way, I don't want to stop in the middle of a lesson to record these HPs. I have inherited a system whereby they are stored up until the end of the day - then either I or my TA give them out (a star which they go and stick on their House Record Sheet and also recorded in a House Point Book - as they get a certificate when they reach 25). I find this time consuming (5-10mins), certain children claim a HP which no-one can remember giving them (!), the rest of the class use it as time to have a nice, loud chin wag and basically I feel it is a waste of time and not a great part of the day. So, any ideas, warmly received... Thanks.
