Reading Rewards

Reading rewards for the Autumn Term 2019

We continue to encourage the children to read at home and to have their book signed by an adult at least 3 times per week. For every 4 weeks that your child has reached the home reading target, they can choose a small reward. There are lots of goodies on offer.

Reading record books are checked every Thursday for our records. We will remind the children to give in their books, but you can help at home by prompting the children before school on Thursday mornings – thank you. This should help develop independence as the year progresses.

Let us know if you have read a really good book!

Class Behaviour Chart

In Elm Class, we have a ‘Good to be Green’ behaviour chart. All the children’s names are displayed with a green card. This means they are following school behaviour expectations and they are rewarded with a team point for remaining green all week. If children are not following behaviour expectations, they may be given an amber warning card. Further reprimand may lead to a red card with a consequence such as missing play time. If amber or red cards are given out, we will inform parents with a note in the reading record book, along with a brief explanation of the reason. We hope in this instance, you will talk to your child about what has happened. Please feel free to ask Mrs Saunders or Mrs Lewis for further information if you would find it helpful.
