Speaking and Listening

                                                                                                                         National Breakfast Scheme


Each day after registration, the children will have the choice to partake in breakfast sitting in small table groups; a variety of cereals Mon-Thur and bagels on a Friday. Research has shown a direct link between the breakfast habits of children and their educational attainment, with children in primary schools where breakfast is provided achieving on average up to two months’ additional academic progress over the course of a year. Our exciting National School Breakfast Programme, in partnership with Magic Breakfast and funded by the Department for Education, is working to support our schools to improve access to healthy breakfasts and learning.

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.


The staff in the Unit this year are Mrs Owens and Miss Cartledge who will work mainly with F1 and Mrs Wregg and Mrs Wright who will work will F2.  In the afternoons we will also have extra support from additional adults.
