Home School Agreement

Reading Books

Children will have an individual reading and library book to take home weekly. They have already read the book at school so please help them to practise reading it at home. Don’t forget to write a comment so that we can see that they have read. When they have read 25 books at home, they are awarded the bronze Reading Olympic certificate in assembly. The next challenge is to read 50 books for the silver award and then 100 books for the gold award.

 

Homework Sheets

The children will have new homework every half term. The homework will also give you an overview of what they have been learning. Please complete the homework activities with your child and ensure that your child brings their homework back by the end of the half term. 

 

 

British Values

As part of our British Values in Reception we will be learning about Democracy by encouraging the children to make decisions together.  One of the ways we will be doing this is by holding class votes for example a class vote for who will be part of the School Council. The importance of valuing each others feelings and views will be embedded in the day to day learning. The children will be taught the importance of having rules and routines in place within the school and classroom. This will also be linked to the wider community such as the police and people who help us.

 

Children will always encouraged to think about their actions and make good choices. As part of our topics such as All About Me, we will be learning about how we are all different and how this should be celebrated. Children will be encouraged as part of their self confidence and self awareness to feel confident to express their needs and opinions. Mutual respect and tolerance will be part of the underpinning the values in Reception. An ethos of inclusion will be embedded where the children are sensitive to the needs and beliefs of others. This will be encouraged through the importance of sharing and respecting opinions.
