A day in the life of Whip-Ma-Whop-Ma-Gate
We begin the day at 8.40am with the register and our Restorative Practise check in!
At 8.50am it is time for Reading Squad! Every child reads in a small group with an adult every day
Phonics is next at 9.20am. We learn our sounds through reading, writing and lots of different active games too! Find out more information about Phonics at Haxby Road here.
At 9.30am we begin our English session. We use class books to develop our vocabulary and writing skills. We use lots of drama skills to support our ideas for writing and spend a lot of time perfecting the basics!
10.15am is our morning break time! We have a fresh fruit snack and enjoy games in the fresh air on our lovely playground.
Our Maths learning takes place between 10.30am and 11.40am. We teach through mastery, following small steps of progression to ensure we develop our arithmetic, alongside our problem solving and reasoning skills.
11.40am – 12.30pm is lunch time! We are all entitled to a delicious free hot school lunch before stretching our legs on the playground or on our school field if the weather is good!
In the afternoons we learn through our exciting whole school topics, covering all subject areas! For more information about our current topic, see below!
On Monday afternoon, we have Spanish, PE and Music lessons led by specialist teachers. School provides a PE kit for every child.
We use the app Seesaw to showcase our children’s fabulous learning and keep in touch with parents at this tricky time! If you need any help accessing the app, we would be happy to assist! In the eventuality that any child needs to self isolate, we will provide all remote learning via the app.
