R ECEPTION M EETING September 17 th 2014
A IMS FOR THE MEETING : To find out about routines and procedures in Reception To find out about the topics for the year To meet each other and build a support network
E XPECTATIONS The rules and expectations have been discussed and agreed with the children We have a token system to encourage good behaviour. We also have a range of rewards –stickers, message home, whole class treat etc. Consequences for breaking rules escalate from a warning, time out, going to another class, and finally, sent to Ms. Osbaldeston or Miss Carroll. You will always be told if your child’s behaviour has resulted in being sent to the headteacher.
U NIFORM Children should wear school uniform every day unless it is a fundraising day or a special theme (World Book Day) Shoes need to be sensible for climbing No jewellery should be worn and any earrings must be small studs. PE kits must be in school for PE lessons. This consists of a plain top and shorts/leggings, plimsolls or trainers (No baggy shorts) Book bags should be in school every day. No rucksacks please as we don’t have the storage space in class
R EADING Children will read once a week, individually and in group reading. There is shared reading in class every day Children learn speed sounds in phonics sessions. (The sound each letter makes) We will be sending high-frequency words home to learn every week. These are for learning to read AND to spell They will take a reading book home for them to read with you and talk about the story they have read. Please write in the home/school Reading Diary when your child has read with you at home. They can also borrow a book from the class library
