How do you get a 6 yr old to understand that mucking about in class and being the class clown is not doing him any favours in the long term ?

He is 6 and doesn't understand long term. In the short term, which is all he can understand, he gets attention and he gets out of work. Attention and work avoidence are big motivators.

Set up a system where he does not get the reward for the behavior

His teacher ought to be doing this if he/she is at all skilled with kids
