 In Year 1 and Year 2 the day begins with a supported reading session during which groups of children work with adults to read books that have been chosen specifically for their ability; adults support and challenge them to read these books and ask questions about the stories.  

 

It is for this reason that we ask that children are in punctually at 8:55 am for Reception to Year 2, as these sessions start promptly 9:00 am. This is a vital time for children to learn new reading and comprehension skills which will enable them to work in other curriculum areas throughout the day. 

 

In Years 1 -6 the children begin with additional lessons, such as Grammar or Numeracy. This starts promptly at  8:40 am

 

Then a typical day for the children in Reception to Year 6 classes would look like the timetable below:

Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception Classes) have  their own specialized Curriculum for Early Years and a typical day would look like  the timetable below:
