Routines and systems:

Our Day

* We start the day in our Key Worker groups, welcoming the children, sharing their news and introducing activities for the day.

*This is followed by ‘Busy time’ where the children explore the activities and initiate their own learning through play both indoors and outdoors.

*In the middle of the morning we have a speaking and listening or phonics session followed by snack in our key worker groups.

*Children then return to busy time and end the morning with stories or songs for F1 children and Literacy or Numeracy for F2 children.

*This routine is repeated in the afternoon, focussing on different curriculum areas during carpet times.

Throughout the day children also work at targeted activities and in small groups with staff to develop their skills in the different areas of the curriculum.
