Starting Reception: Rules

Your child is bound to be nervous starting Reception and may experience a few teething problems .

But with a few simple rules their transition can be helped and soon they will be running into the classroom on their own. Rules are very, very  very important in a Reception childs life, the whole of a Reception child day is centred on structure even if they don't know it themselves. So make sure you find out what your child's class rules are ,perhaps you have your own rules at home, and if so then their transition may be all the smoother. They they might experience with their new class teacher are:

1. Lips closed ( speaks for itself really ).

2. Carpet is thinking time ( this instills when they are on the carpet that they are quiet and wait for the teacher and perhaps think about a question that they have been asked)

3. Listen ( the teacher may explain that they have one pair of ears so can only listen to one child at a time! )

4. Sit on the carpet quietly.

5. Walk in the classroom.

Your child's teacher will not bombard your child with rules but will built them up slowly. There will be constant rearming of the rules and reminding. I hope that your child loves their time at school. Do let me know who they get on. As I have a reception class this year myself! so its a new beginning and rules for myself as well.

I met half of my reception class today and they are so lovely I shall be charting what I learn as I go , I do hope you will follow me and hopefully pick up so tips or if you want as some questions. I going to love being a Teaching assistant in this class.
