Promoting Responsibility in Key Stage 1

In Key Stage 1, each child has the opportunity to take on extra responsibility in the classroom. There are many jobs roles which change each week. These include; light monitor, door monitor, Chromebook monitor, sports monitor, file monitor and, the most important role, the teacher’s personal assistant! Assigning classroom jobs teaches the children responsibility, gives them pride in a job well done, enables students to feel important, promotes positive behaviour, and ensures that all students are contributing to the classroom community.

Here are some of the children’s thoughts on classroom jobs.

“I like working with my friends.”

“I like our jobs because they are important and exciting.”

“Doing a job for my friends and teachers makes me feel happy.”

“Jobs are good because then the teacher doesn’t have to do everything, the children can help because the teacher already has lots of jobs to do!”

“My favourite job is PA because we get to help the teacher a lot.”
