A Day in the life at Kindergarten
Our Kindergarten day begins at 8.30am when we start nursery and choose from a range of activities available from classroom. On Mondays and Fridays, we are joined by our Year 6 Buddies and attend the whole school assembly. Wednesdays and Thursdays, at 8.45am, we gather on the carpet and have our morning circle time. We enjoy singing, reading stories and taking turns to talk about our day ahead.
We then enjoy free play and take part in our planned structured and focused activities. These are always planned around our own interests which makes it so much fun!
In Kindergarten, we are introduced to initial sounds using the Jolly Phonics scheme, which involves lots of singing and actions rhymes. We also enjoy taking part in lots of experiments, exploring and creating different things each day. We especially love our weekly baking sessions…
At 11.30am we have a delicious lunch in the hall and we are joined by our teachers. We then run around our playground where there is a climbing frame, slide, mud kitchen, sensory garden and plenty of outdoor toys to play with.
After lunch we have afternoon circle time. We may have another story, sing more songs, be introduced to a new activity or choose something ourselves. On Thursdays we have a Show and Tell where one of our class friends will bring something from home into class to talk about. This is brilliant for helping us to develop confidence in ourselves and to gain an understanding of sharing, listening, and taking turns.
At 2pm we have an afternoon tidy where we put away the toys and activities and prepare for a snack together and sit around the tables to eat and share with each other.
A volunteer is selected to say a thank you prayer before our mummies and daddies come into the classroom to collect us at 3.30pm. We can’t wait to see them to tell then what a lovely busy day we have had and what we have learned!
