A day in the life of Ousegate

We begin our day at 8.40am with a register and a writing task!

At 8.50am, we start Reading Squad! All the children read in small groups with adults every day!

Next we start a topic and literacy session! In this session we share ideas and learn new and exciting things linked to our class topic!

After this, we start our play! We have free-flow play from indoor to outdoors. The children choose an area to play and can freely move around the unit and the outdoor area, developing and enhancing their play and imaginative ideas! We have free access to snack throughout our play too!

At 11am, we finish our play and begin Phonics! We learn all our sounds which help us for reading and writing! 

After that we prepare for lunchtime! From 11.30-12.30 we enjoy lunch! We are all entitled to a delicious free hot school lunch! We also get the chance to enjoy some more play time in our outdoor area, or on sunny days onto the field!

After a busy lunchtime, we sit down for a maths session! We learn our numbers and all about each number in detail to build our understanding. This helps us to solve maths problems and become deeper thinkers! We also learn about shapes and measurements!

Back to learning through play in the afternoon! From 12.50 until 2.30 we play in our outdoor and indoor areas, continuing to develop and challenge ourselves and our ideas!

At 2.30pm, we each do a Review of our day! We draw a picture of something we have down and build up to writing about it! We then share a class story and prepare for home time at 2.50pm!

What a busy day!

On Monday’s, we get a Spanish session with a Specialist teacher! We also have a specialist teacher who teaches us Music on Wednesday afternoons! To build our physical skills, we spend time in our Forest schools and have a PE session once a week!

Seesaw

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. 

Highlights! 

Making castles in our provision!

Role playing in our outdoors!

Working together to develop and stretch our ideas
