Registration and 5-a-day.
This is when children with take part in a guided read or write and then complete independent work. They will also have opportunity to access the areas of provision in the classroom at this time (writing area, workshop, role-play, math’s area etc.).
10.45am -Snack Break
Children will be provided with fruit and water. If you have paid for milk; children will drink it at this time
This is when children will learn new math’s skills. In Year 1 most of the skills they learn are very practical. They will be given lots of opportunities to work out problems and apply new skills using a range of resources. We love using Numicon in Year 1 to help us learn patterns in the number system.
