Our School Day

 

The typical pattern of the school day is:

Key Stage 1

8.45-8.55 Classroom doors open. Children enter school

From 8.45 Active Learning at tables.  During this time the register is completed and dinner numbers checked

9.05 – 9.20 Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday – Assembly

9.25 – 10.35     1st work period 

Wednesday 10.10 – 10.25 Assembly

10.40 – 10.55     PLAYTIME

11.00 – 12.15    2nd Work period

12.00 – 1.10       Lunch ‘hour’

1.15 – 3.10 Afternoon work period

 

Early Years – Reception

8.45-8.55 Classroom doors open. Children enter school.

For the first two terms Reception classes do not have set playtimes as there is a ‘free-flow’ most of the day between the indoor and outdoor classroom.

Reception children only attend special whole school assemblies such as Harvest or special visitors for the first two terms. They have some Year Group assemblies in the Hall.

Their curriculum is based upon learning through play so most sessions apart from PE in the Hall will be either adult led activities or child initiated independent learning. Adults will interact with these activities and intervene where necessary to enable them to move their learning forward. Snack is organised on a café basis where, once it is open, the children are encouraged to ‘think and drink’ when they choose to.

Now the school is offering Universal Free School Meals we have staggered lunch times.

Reception lunchtime is from 11.45 - 1.00

End of the school day – 3.10

 

Nursery

We offer five free 3 hour sessions a week on a flexible basis for children who will be four during the current school year.

 

The morning session starts at 8.30 and runs to 11.30 and the afternoon session starts at 12.30 and ends at 3.30.

Children with morning and afternoon sessions can stay for lunch (at an additional cost).

As with the Reception their curriculum is based upon learning through play so most sessions apart from PE in the Hall will be either adult led activities or child initiated independent learning. Adults will interact with these activities and intervene where necessary to enable them to move their learning forward. Snack is organised on a café basis where, once it is open, the children are encouraged to ‘think and drink’ when they choose to.

The Nursery children occasionally join the rest of the school for major celebrations such as Harvest and also have timetabled PE sessions in the Hall.
