The classroom doors open from 8.45am to allow children to come in calmly and be ready for learning. Staff take the register at 8.55am and learning starts promptly.
In Year R and Year 1, the children do not tend to follow a strict timetable of lessons during the day, as activities and timings are shaped by their engagement in their learning. However, this is what a typical day may look like:
08:45 – Children may arrive at school.
08:55 – Registration
09:00 – 09:30 – Adult guided activities and focus jobs
09:30 – 10:00 – Phonics
10:00 - 10:45 – Independent Learning
10:45 – 11:00 – Break (snack time and milk)
11.00 – 12:00 – Independent Learning
12:00 – 13:00 – Lunch
13:00 – 13:10 -Registration
13:10 – 13:40 - Maths
13:40 – 14:30 – Independent Learning
14:30 – 14:50 - Collective Worship
14:50 – 15:15 - Storytime
15:15 – End of the School Day
We have assemblies (collective worship) each day. Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, these are based in classes and are taken by either the Headteacher or class teachers. We celebrate a range of religions though our collective worship time, as well as reinforcing our British Values, school core values and celebrating our successes.
Our Friday assembly is a time to celebrate together what we have done well that week. Year R and Year 1 currently have separate celebration assemblies on a Friday afternoon.
As the school grows over time (and COVID-19 restrictions on mixing of bubbles are removed), on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays we will meet as a whole school for collective worship and on the other days we will have separate KS1 and KS2 assemblies. Our Friday assembly will become a whole school celebration assembly.
