Morning Session

On a normal day, children’s morning learning consists of Read Write Inc, Maths and English.  In addition to these learning opportunities, children are exposed to a wide range of continuous provision areas where they work independently on specific tasks.  These take place indoors and outdoors.  Children are expected to use there learning skills, independent problem solving abilities and team work capabilities.

Lunchtime 12:00 - 1:05pm

Children have lunches that are prepared on site over two sittings in the school hall and then experience Positive Playtimes with lunchtime staff. They are encouraged to work together, be friendly, helpful, kind and caring towards other children in the playground.

In the dining hall, children are expected to use their manners and knife and fork correctly (or at least have a go!). 

Afternoon Session

Firstly all classes take part in Guided Reading where they can apply their reading skills in a variety of adult guided and independent activities. After that is our topic session where we use cross curricular links to build on literacy and numeracy skills learnt in subjects such as Science, Art and Design, Computing, Design and Technology, History and Geography. 

PE

All children will have at least two sessions of PE a week where they will experience a broad diet of Ball Skills, Gymnastics and Dance.  Look at our PE policy on guidance on kit, jewelry and exemptions from participation in PE. Specialist sports coaches work with the staff to deliver our PE curriculum.
