9:15 am Assembly in the hall. We look forward to sung praise on Tuesdays, visits from Sister Dorothy on Thursdays and praising on Fridays.
9:35 Back to the classroom for our first ‘learning stop of the day, which is mathematics with Mrs Barker. We wake up our brains with mental maths activities and challenges. We can then move onto our main lessons of fractions, decimals, percentages and even algebra!

10:55am - Back in class we refuel with milk and toast. Then it’s off to our next learning stop.
11:00am English with Mrs Ward. A quick ‘Thunk activity’, (chunk of thinking), to fire up our brains and we’re ready for the learning fun and challenges our teacher has in store. We cover everything from Picture Books to Shakespeare!
12:00pm - Lunch in the hall. During this hour we all go to our jobs or play with our friends. Some work in the school office or others help in the Early Years.

Now is the chance to read a selection of books that we may not choose for ourselves, whether they be a different genre to the one we usually go for, a new author or the latest book our favourite author has released. 1.30pm - It's time for: RE, Science, History, French and Art. We have P.E on Wednesday and Friday afternoons. We also manage to fit in DT, British Values and SCARF.
