The Pili-Pala morning session starts at 8.55am and ends at 11:45am, and the afternoon session starts at 12:55pm and finishes at 3:15pm.
The children can bring a healthy snack to school each day and a bottle of water for snack time.
Our Forest school activities are on a Wednesday and the children can come to school in their Wellies. (you may leave a pair of wellies in school) We go out in all weather so please make sure that they are wearing suitable clothing e.g. coats, sunhats, bobble hats.
Play is important.
The children will still continue to learn through play and will have plenty of opportunities to play both indoors and outside. The role play and investigation areas are changed regularly in the workshops.
Children will complete Spotlight activities in which there are focused tasks taught by the class teachers. They will then use these taught skills to take part in some independent learning called IQ's or Independent Quests. The children will also have Choice and Challenge areas where they will play games, problem solve or paint pictures relating to the topic.
PE is on a Friday and children can come to school in their sports kit. They can wear joggers,T-shirts, shorts & trainers. House colour Tshirts are available from the school office.
The sessions are very busy and go very quickly. The children will be tired at first but this will get better as they build up their stamina over the coming weeks. If you have any questions then please speak to a member of the Pod Pili-Pala team. We are always happy to help and will do our best to answer questions and solve problems.
