School Day

What happens during a school day at Woodcote?

  • 7.45am – The breakfast club opens its doors to welcome children with a healthy breakfast. There are lots of activities for the children to enjoy.
  • 8.40am  Mr Brown opens the gates and the children can go straight into their class. Children who are attending the breakfast club can go to their classrooms. The teacher will have morning activities for the children to complete.
  • 8.50am – The register is taken.
  • 9.00am – The children all meet together in the hall for a whole school assembly on a Monday. On a Friday it is a class assembly, where the children are able to share their learning and parents and carers are invited to attend. Friday’s assembly begins at 2.30pm and parents or carers are welcome to visit their child’s classroom once the assembly has finished.
  • 10.30am – Ash, Hawthorn and Pine classes have their playtime.
  • 10.45am – Playtime finishes for the younger children and the rest of the children go out to play.
  • 11.00am – The older children finish their playtime.
  • 12.00pm – Ash, Hawthorn and Pine classes begin their lunchtime
  • 12.15pm – Oak, Sycamore, Birch, Rowan and Willow classes begin their lunchtime.

During lunchtime the children have an opportunity to go onto the field if it is dry. They can also play sports on the MUGA if it is their turn. The children have play equipment to play with and there is a nurture group for those who need a little extra support.

  • 1.00pm – Lunchtime finishes for the younger children.
  • 1.15pm – Lunchtime finishes for the older children.
  • 2:40pm – Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday assemblies.
  • 3.15pm – The children finish for the day.

We usually have a range of clubs taking place before and after school, a form is sent out at the beginning of each term to let parents know what clubs are on offer. During lunchtimes, the older children enjoy being playcoaches and leaders, and offer a range of sporting activities to the children - such as football and dodgeball.
