Team Behaviour Process
We have many ways in which we encourage positive behaviour, with house points, classdojo points, Incentive coupons and certificates. Sometimes this isn’t enough and a different consequence is needed.
The following is the procedure we will follow as a team for unacceptable behaviour. This rarely applies to most students but it is important to recognise that this is the procedure we will follow.

Third Warning 1 written beside name

This year our team will continue to use the PRIME Mathematics Programme during cross-grouping. The PRIME Mathematics Programme is sequential, revisiting concepts and building on these so your child is confident to move to the next step. The programme builds a solid foundation in Mathematics, developing a conceptual understanding with a strong focus on problem solving.
The programme is aligned with the New Zealand Curriculum and will support your child to meet the expected curriculum level.
Within these activities will be Reading at home. Your child is encouraged to read regularly at home, record this on the Home Learning Activities Sheet and have it signed by a parent or caregiver after each time.
Reading regularly is about encouraging reading mileage and helping your child to develop vocabulary and comprehension knowledge. Reading a variety of materials such as newspapers, comics, magazines, novels and recipes helps to develop a broader understanding of texts. Part of the activities will be having your child read aloud to someone to practise this skill. It is important that this is encouraged to support their learning at school.
Reading aloud can be included as a part of reading activities.
Learning Basic Facts will also be an important part of the activities. The number of times per fortnight your child practises these will depend on their ability to recall basic facts in all four operations with speed and accuracy. Some suggestions of ways to learn these are:
Using dice or counters
Apps that can be downloaded onto your child’s device
Flashcards (can be purchased from $2 shops or printed off the internet)
Time tables poster
Practising with an adult, saying the answer or question out loud
Along with these two focus areas there will be other optional activities on the Home Learning Sheet. In some fortnights there will be a little competition within the activities for an optional task.
Those children who complete the required tasks, with signatures and evidence if required at the end of each fortnight will be rewarded.
Please ensure that your child has the appropriate stationery for school.
