Typical School Day

A Typical day in FOUNDATION STAGE UNIT

Children arrive at 8:50am and leave at 2:50pm.  When children arrive in school they have the opportunity to prepare for the school day.

Morning and afternoon sessions always begin with circle time, a very important part of the day.  This time provides opportunities for discussion, early numeracy, early literacy and communication.

The day progresses to enable children to use inside and outside areas to develop and practise skills.  We believe that young children learn best through play, structured to best support their needs.

During each daily session, there are two opportunities for snack time.  The children have a drink and something to eat.  Snacks are varied and as healthy as possible and the children are encouraged to try new things.

In F.S.U. children will get ready for lunch at 11:30am followed by a play session before commencing the afternoon activities.  In main school lunchtime starts from 11:30am and children with either eat in the hall or in the quiet dining space.

From 2:30pm children prepare for home / school transport and end the session with stories and / or songs.

The times of the school day vary slightly from class to class with regard to breaks and lunchtime arrangements.

In general the school day is organised as follows:
