The School Day
At Lightwater School we have a routine to our school day. The routine for Reception pupils is a little different to Years 1 and 2, but for all year groups the following applies. The official school day starts with morning registration at 8:30-8:45am and ends at 3:00pm. This includes breaks but not optional before or after school activities. The total time this amounts to in a typical week is 32.5 hours.
Do you go to breakfast club?
The breakfast club is a fun start to your day where you can enjoy breakfast, games and time with friends. It's open from 7:30-8:30am and takes place in the school hall.
The doors open and your teacher or teaching assistant will greet you. When you get into school please:
- Put your coat, water bottle, book bag and packed lunch (if you have one) away
- Change your reading book if you need to
- Choose your lunch if you have a school dinner
- Say you are here when the teacher takes the register
Morning break time (20 minutes)
You will have some time to have a good drink from your water bottle or a carton of milk if your parent has signed you up to the 'cool milk' scheme. You will also be offered a fruit or vegetable snack.
It's lunchtime! You will need to wash your hands before lunch and then line up to go into the hall if you are on the first lunch sitting. If you need help cutting up your food you can put your hand up and a lunchtime supervisor will help you. You should put your hand up before eating your pudding, so the lunch staff can make sure you have eaten enough to keep your energy up during the afternoon. When you have eaten your lunch you can put your coat on and go out to play until 'lining up' time. If you are on the second lunch sitting (alternate Year 1 class and both Year 2 classes) you will go out to play first and then come in to have your lunch at 12:30pm.
Once lunchtime finishes at 1:00pm, your teacher will take the register when you return to the classroom.
It's home time! You will be collected by your mummy, daddy or another grown-up.
Do you do an after school club or go to In2Care?
Your teacher or Teaching Assistant will take you to the room where your club takes place.
