Mr Pickering's class
Welcome to our class page!
Welcome to Mr Pickering’s Class! We are a hardworking class who try our best at everything we do. We are a strong unit with great team spirit and we work together to help support each other. During this year, Mrs Thornton will be assisting with the children’s learning and development.
"Bee cheerful ... Bee yourself"
Behaviour and rewards system
We are using a warning, warning, timeout system in class this year. If children choose the wrong behaviour, in the first instance they will receive a warning. If they choose the wrong behaviour for a second time, they receive a second warning. Then, finally, if they choose the wrong behaviour for a third time, they will receive a timeout and miss their next playtime to reflect on their behaviour and discuss how we will move forward.
As a rewards system, the children are working both individually and as a part of a team. For positive behaviour, manners, politeness, hard work and effort, children can earn tokens that are added to their team token tubes. These are all counted on a Friday across the whole school and the winning token team colour is celebrated in assembly. As a whole class children are working together to earn marbles in a jam jar. Children can earn marbles for excellent behaviour, effort and manners as a whole class, for example when lining up or sitting in assembly. When the jam jar is full, the whole class will receive a treat.
Homework will be set on a Friday to be completed by the following Friday.
This will include:
One doodle maths added extra task. (Children can still access the Doodle 7 a day as many times a week as they would like if they wish to.)
Two Reading Plus 'reading assignment' sessions of 30mins each per week.
Spellings will be given on a Friday, to be tested the following Friday.
We strongly recommend that children also practise Timestables Rock Stars – as regularly as possible please.
Our PE days this year will be Monday and Wednesday. We kindly ask that children come to school in PE shorts or jogging bottoms, PE T-shirt and school jumper or cardigan on these days. Please could children always have a spare pair of trainers at school with them in a drawstring bag.
Our Entrance and exit
To drop off and collect children in my class, please walk down the main school path and then turn right through the car park. Then walk down the side of school with the park on your right and my classroom is the first one on the left round the back of school.
