    We have an agreement! If they work hard in the mornings, which are writing, reading comp and maths, we have fun in the afternoon ( which today meant completely gutting the PE cupboard and tomorrow means using some of the equipment we have unearthed today!) I explain that we have a certain amount of work to get through each day, what we do after that depends on how responsible they are in the morning!

    Write a letter to their classteacher with them.
    Start it at the beginning of the day while they come in, with 'Dear Miss........ Today your class came in very............. and ....................' Then carry on with something like 'They were so polite during the register and answered sensibly, while being quiet for me to be able to hear' and so on and so on all day. Just write about general class impression, but do use words like some and most to indicate it wasn't all.

    Make yourself a table with two columns, one saying 'those children who were especially helpful and hard working' and the other saying 'those children who were particularly poorly behaved'. As soon as you see someone being good ask for their name and make a big show of writing it in the correct column and explain that it is for their regular teacher.

    Find out before the children arrive who you can send children out to should you need to do so. Write their name on the whiteboard and tell the children it is to remind you which teacher has said they will have any child who chooses not to behave.

    Have a great day!
