Our Daily Routine
Our daily routine goes hand in hand with delivering the curriculum. If the curriculum is ‘Everything we want the children to learn,’ then what happens during each day will dictate exactly that.
We use the structure of our day so that literally every moment is an opportunity for learning!
Our daily routine recognises the key moments during the school day, during which we can promote these learning opportunities. For example; our welly walks give children the opportunity to learn to put their coats on by themselves, our feelings check in supports children to name and talk about their feelings; register time, snack time and our daily book vote, all provide rich opportunities for looking at counting, recognising number, and comparing quantities . . . the list goes on and on.
Within the daily routine we also plan structured activities and provide well-resourced provision for adult guided play, based around our Core Books each half-term. Within this provision we support children to make their own progress towards their individual targets.
The final key component of our daily routine, is our daily delivery of the Little Wandle Foundation Phonics Programme and Squiggle and Wiggle Early Writing Programme. More information about both these programmes, as well as our Core Books can be found in the Curriculum section of the website.
