A Typical Day at School

We come in at sit on the carpet to register, following this we start phonics. It is very important that children are in school on time, as lateness will mean they miss this essential part of the day.

After that children have discovery time in the classroom where they are free to engage in a range of activities designed to encourage independent learning and problem solving, whilst still meeting the needs of the curriculum. Adults are on hand to interact with the children ensuring that they get the maximum benefit from any activity.

While these activities are happening we also have adult led activities which have a specific learning intention and aim to further the children’s learning and build up their key skills in different areas.

Children have snack and milk every morning which is a chance for them to sit quietly together and chat, this is often focused around our ‘weekly question’ which links to the core British Values, or to our 5 school values; Kindness, Forgiveness, Love, Respect, Perseverance.

We have daily worship everyday at 9.45am. Lunch time is at 12.00pm and all children have the opportunity to have a hot lunch or bring in a packet lunch if they prefer.
