  • Group activities – teacher led, adult supported, independent
  • Star time – child initiated activities linked to topic and current learning. It is an opportunity for the children to solve problems, make decisions and demonstrate independence.
  • Topic related activities e.g. science, art, geography.
  • Circle time – whole class time to develop personal, social, speaking and listening skills.
  • PE – please leave PE bags at school all week. Outdoor PE is on a Thursday.  Please send your child into school in leggings/tracksuit trousers, trainers and school uniform on the top.
