Super Points have been replaced with PRIDE points. At Snape Wood, we believe that every child should feel proud to be a part of our school and so we have introduced PRIDE points. Each letter represents an aspect of our school values:
P - positive attitude
R - respectful
I - inquisitive
D - determination
E - empathy
We will be using class dojo in the classroom to record PRIDE points. Children can still collect points and spend them in the PRIDE points shop. You can also follow what's happening in our classroom by signing up to our class Dojo app. If you require a letter to see your child's Dojo progress, please pop in and ask Miss Gudgin.
Here are some ideas for how to work with your child at home to support the skills they need at school. I have included documents about supporting your child in reading, writing and with their speaking and listening skills. I have also included a recommended reading list, which contains a variety of age appropriate fiction books to help inspire a love of reading. It is vital that home and school work together to help children reach their full potential. I hope that this will give you a few ideas about how this can be achieved. Please let me know if you have found this useful or have any further questions.

The shared Class 4 and 5 cloakroom will now, due to health and safety, be cleared out at the end of every week. Any property will be bagged and stored until the end of each half term. If property is not collected by this time it will be donated to charity. Please ask if you would like to look through for missing items.
Our next class trip will be to the National Space Centre on 29th January 2017. A letter will be sent home nearer the time to inform you of the itinerary for the day.
Reading is really important at Snape Wood. We want all children to become confident readers, who enjoy reading for pleasure. To support us in this, please make sure you read with your child for at least fifteen minutes a day and write this in your child’s reading diary. When your child reads 10, 20, 30 and 50 books, they will receive a certificate.
This year we are continuing our reading club called The Book Worm Club. It is a fantastic opportunity for you to catch up on home reading and receive support from teaching staff.
The club is on every Wednesday at:
8:30am until 8:50am and 3:15pm until 4:00pm.
In class 5, we follow the behaviour traffic light system. All children start the day on green. If a child breaks one of our school rules they are given a reminder and asked to change their behaviour. If the child does not correct their behaviour we move their name down to orange. If there is still no improvement the child's name is moved to red. Children are given the opportunity to move up the traffic light system and we encourage children to work their way back up to green. If a child is on red and their behaviour does not improve they are sent for timeout in another classroom.
Red cards are sent home if a child is on red at the end of the day or if they display extreme behaviour. If your child brings home a red card, please take the opportunity to talk to your child about their behaviour and sign and return the card.
Green cards are sent home on a Friday to children that have displayed positive behaviour and finished the week without receiving a red card. It is an opportunity for both school and parents to celebrate positive behaviour. The children really enjoy receiving the cards and look forward to bringing them home. If you sign and return your child's green card, they are entered into a prize draw.
