The School Day

What do we do?
The school day begins at 8:40am when we open our gates and children can enter the classroom. We start the day with a Thinking Skills activity which is designed to wake up the brain before the register is taken at 8:50. 
In the morning we have two active sessions in between lessons to help with focus and concentration. Children all take part in  a T.E.A.M activity (Ten Extra Active Minutes) which is a guided yoga, dance or Daily Mile session  and a further break time at 10:50 to ensure that they stay active throughout the day. Active children are not only healthier, but also can concentrate more and their academic performance increases.
Lunch break starts at 12:10 for children in Ash and Oak Class, who eat their lunch slightly earlier. Children in Beech and Willow start lunch at 12:20. We all go out to play together between 12:40 and 1:10. At lunchtime we have PlayPod equipment, which the children use to stay active and engage in creative play. They can dress up, build dens, act out role play and generally have fun!
The School day ends at 3:10pm. Children are collected from the classroom door on the playground. 
Take a look at the class pages for a full class timetable!
Our school day runs from 8:40am to 3:10pm. Pupils are in school for 6.5 hours each day, which is 32.5 hours every week.
