This is our school hall. We use this spaces every day when we each lunch. These are cooked at a local school and brought in at lunchtime each day. Some children prefer to eat a packed lunch, although all children throughout the school are entitled to a daily hot meal under the governments Universal Free School Meal scheme for all Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children. The menu works on a 3 week rolling cycle. Lunchtime is a social occasion where we sit with our classmates to eat before going outside to play.
The hall is also the place where we have indoor PE lessons, put on performances and meet together for assembly. There is a wide range of gymnastic materials, including climbing frames kept in the hall. It also has a sound system and projection screen so we can share work from the computer or video clips.
At the rear of the hall there is another room which is our school library.
We recently developed this area to also have a lovely library area. The children across the school designed the sea themed area. We especially love the huge sea creature bean bags to sit and enjoy a book. All of our children visit the library regularly and can borrow books to share with parents at home to develop their love of reading.
Our volunteer Mrs Jenner helps keep this area organised and helps children to choose a book they may like.
We are constantly reviewing the books held in the library to ensure they are of a good quality and provide children with a range of opportunities to read for pleasure. In the past fund raising such as 'Bounce for Books' have supported the purchase of new books for the children.
Our home reading scheme books are kept in a separate area just by Turtle Class. These are linked to the phonetic code and provide children with the opportunity to read at home with a book that is linked to their phonetic knowledge. Whilst children are still
learning to decode the phonetic code they are given books which help them practice their poetic skills linked to our phonics program Unlocking Letters and Sounds. More information can be found on the Early Reading curriculum area of the website.
