A day in the life at Sunny Brow

 

7:45am An early start is available for those children accessing the extended 30 hour service.

8.45am or 12.15pm
Welcome time – parents chat with the teachers and children are encouraged to ‘catch up’ with their friends.

9.00am or 12.30pm
Doors close and the session begins with a variety of inputs – Peer Massage, Show and Tell, even French lessons!

9.15am or 12.45pm
The children work with a teacher on a directed lesson (this could be inside or out) or they have a chance to choose their favourite activity. They work uninterrupted for almost 2 hours, allowing deep concentration and effective learning to occur.  During the session a snack is available, fruit or crackers with water or milk. Children help themselves if they ‘feel the need’.

11.10am or 2.40pm
Children come back together for a singing or story session, differentiated to suit their age/concentration span.  If a child has an identified need (which could include being Gifted and Talented) they may work with a specialist assistant during this short period at the end of the session.

11.30am or 3.00pm
Doors open for 15 minutes to allow for flexible ‘pick up’ time.

11:45
Lunch time for those accessing extended hours

3:15 – 4:15
Late pick up for those accessing the extended hours.
