The day follows a familiar pattern, starting with phonics, where we teach the Read, Write, Inc scheme. Snack and playtime follow, in which the children are encouraged to be independent by sorting their own snack and putting on their coats. The morning also includes maths and activities based around our termly topics, while also taking opportunities to follow the children’s interests in the form of sustained shared thinking.
After lunch, the children have many more opportunities for exploration and pursuing their favourite artistic activities. The day ends with singing and stories and lots of tired but happy children who are ready to go home to their parents.
