Behaviour

Behaviour and learning is based around the five core values, which we expect the children to live up to.

  • Respect

  • Aspiration

  • Honesty

  • Kindness

  • Responsibility


Rewards

In the middle phase (years 1-3) we award class dojo points to reward and promote good behaviour.

At the end of each week the children who have collected the most Dojo Points earn a prize.

Additionally on Friday afternoons we have curriculum enrichment time, where children have a choice of enjoyable activities.


Sanctions

If a child’s behaviour in class or around school falls below the high standards we expect, we use a four-step system to address concerns

If a pupil fails to follow one of the classroom rules, he or she moves on to Step 1, which is a warning.

If the disruptive behaviour continues, the pupil moves on to Step 2, resulting in a period of time out in the class.

Then, they move on to Step 3, which involves time out in a different class.

If a pupil moves on to Step 4, the behaviour incident will be recorded electronically. In addition, parents will be notified and the pupil will receive a consequence for the behaviour, for example loss of playtime.


Topics

In the Autumn term we will be learning about the Romans and their conquest of Great Britain. We will be looking at how they changed the country, bringing a new way of life to people of Britain as well as the resistance they encountered from tribes like the Iceni, led by Boudica.

In the Spring term, we will be doing a South American study, focusing particularly on the area of the Amazon rainforest. We will be looking at reasons for the destruction of the rainforests and the impact that this having on the local and global environment. This topic is also provides children with the opportunity to study the ancient civilisation of the Incas.

In the Summer term, we turn our attentions to the Olympic Games, looking at both the modern and ancient versions. When studying the ancient Olympics we will also looking closely at the way of life of ancient Greeks and their influence on the modern world.

Literacy, Art, DT, Music, History and Geography will all be taught through these topics


Educational visits

During the Autumn term, we will be visiting the Museum of London to find out more about the Romans and their impact on London. The trip will take place on November 26th and there should be no additional cost involved. Parents will be sent further information about the visit nearer the time, including requests for parental help.

Further trips are planned for the Spring and Summer terms.


Homework

Children are given one piece of homework each week to complete. This alternates between Literacy and Maths each week and is completed in children’s homework books. Children can also access additional maths homework online through MyMaths.

There is also an expectation that children do 15-20 minutes reading each evening and record comments in a home reading diary. Each child also has access to a range of ebooks on Bug Club which they can also read.

Children have weekly spellings and times tables to learn and they are tested each week on a Friday.
