After they have eaten, children have time to play or get involved with a lunchtime club..
Our playgrounds are extensively marked with games or puzzles for children to complete. In fine weather we also take out giant board games and make use of our large playing fields. Younger children may also be taught new playground games by older children who contribute as ‘Young Play Leaders’ to make lunchtimes more enjoyable.
At 1.15 pm we start our afternoon activities. During the afternoon sessions, children might be involved in Music, Art, Humanities, Personal Social and Health Education lessons, or Physical Education activities. During the afternoon sessions, children are involved in working on their Topic Work. This is a cross curricular approach where children work towards extending their knowledge and understanding of topic areas and application of basic skills.
Acts of Worship
At 10.25 am on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday we meet for assembly across school.
Assemblies take place as ‘whole school or phase assemblies’.
Assemblies are also used to share achievement or a time when we welcome visitors. Assemblies are planned over the course of the year and arranged into themes. There are opportunities for stories, hymns or songs and quiet reflection and prayer. A longer whole school assembly takes place on a Friday at 9am.
