Children arrive and hang their coat and belongings on their named peg, self register by finding their name and putting it on the board, they can then enjoy free play from a variety of activities until it is time for registration and letters and sounds activities.We then separate into two groups, butterflies and caterpillars.This is where we discuss the weather, the date, and a reminder of our ‘Golden Rules’ , call the register, and take part in our letters and sounds activities.

    The children are currently learning Signalong sign language, we are learning a new sign each week.

    Children are then able to participate in a range of free play and adult-led activities both inside and out, to help them progress in their learning journey. Snack is provided during the morning session.

    At the end of play time children are involved in tidying up the toys to allow room for us to regroup for ‘circle’ time. This is done in two groups again, to enable the staff to play games, read stories or plan activities that engage the children.

    Children then either wash their hands and sit down to lunch or wait on the mat to go home.

    Lunch is from 11.45-12.20 pm the children are given a 5 minute warning at 12.15 pm to signify that lunchtime is coming to an end. 

    In the afternoon the sessions follow the same routine of the morning.

    Afternoon circle time is a group session where we take part in dough disco or our music and movement sessions, strengthen our 'writing' muscles.

    At the end of the session, children are directed to sit in the far corner of the room where they remain seated, until a member of staff has seen a parent or guardian enter the room, and their name has been called.
