Maths passports Maths Maths Maths Maths Home-Learning • All Home-learning completed in home-learning books. • English and Mathematics Home-learning – out on Thursday, back on Tuesday. • Spellings will be given out on Monday and will be tested the following Monday. • Sometimes, the home-learning may be a research project which extends their understanding of what we have learnt in the classroom. • Children who fail to bring in home-learning on three occasions receive a play time detention from their class teacher. This time should be used to complete the outstanding home-learning and is supervised by the class teacher. A detention letter will also be sent home. • MLE and Mathletics Lunchtime Behaviour System • • Yellow card This is a warning. The lunchtime supervisors will write down the child’s name in their book and talk to the child about what rule they have broken. Red card If they break a rule a second time or they do something serious, the child will get a red card. Miss Alison will send a letter to the parent/carer to tell them about the behaviour and the child will have a lunchtime detention the following day with Miss Alison. • If they misbehave again, they will receive another red card. The parent/carer will have to come for a meeting with Mrs Holland and Miss Alison to discuss the behaviour and they will have a lunchtime detention for 2 days. • If your child gets another Red card, it is very serious, they will have a lunchtime detention for 3 days and you will have a meeting with Mrs Holland. The child will go on a ‘report card’ to check their behaviour every play and lunchtime for 10 consecutive days. You will then meet Mrs Holland again to check improvements have been made. At the end of each term the slate is wiped clean and children start each term without a record of detentions or red cards.
