We welcome our children into school at the door when the school day starts at 8.55.

During the morning our children are taught English, maths, phonics and guided reading. It is a very busy time for our children and we help them access this curriculum in different ways through:

  • Role play
  • Small group work
  • Interactive activities on the smart board and computers
  • Practical activities
  • More focussed guided work

This year we are continuing continuous provision, where children access their learning through a variety of different activities, building upon what they have already been taught.

At playtime our children play happily with each other, using the different play equipment. They are also offered fruit, a variety of snacks and water at this time. Water is available throughout the day.

Lunchtime at 12.00 gives the children a choice of a hot or cold meal, then it’s outside to play.

Our afternoon combines all the other subjects into the Middlefield creative curriculum, where our children learn through a topic based approach.

We have many visiting specialists who teach music, dance and MFL. All other subjects i.e. computing, history, geography, R.E. , art, DT are taught by the class teacher.

Science, as a core subject is taught every half term offering exciting investigations, observations and practical work which enable our children to develop their scientific thinking.

All children in year 1 take part in the Middlefield Forest school programme, which offers opportunities for children to learn in a different way in an outdoor environment.

We say goodbye to our children at 3.00 when they are collected from outside the gate.
