A day at Bishop’s Castle


We arrive at 9am and enjoy a delicious healthy breakfast. We can choose toast with jam or butter and water or milk.
During this time we also prepare for our day ahead with word searches, colouring activities and reading time.

At 9:30am we practise our Reading! This sets us up well for our day of learning ahead. During this time we read for 20 minutes, we particularly enjoy our Accelerated Reader sessions where we get to test our skills with an online quiz!

From 9:50am – 12:30pm we enjoy our English, Maths, Spellings and Phonics sessions. We work on a new sound each day and follow the Letters and Sounds document.

Maths and English are tailored to our individual needs and based around our learning theme for the term, some days these are practical and other days written.

Once a week we spend our afternoon doing Enrichment Activities, please see the tab for more information on this.

We have two break times at 10:30 and 11:30. During this time we have chance for a snack, a play in our outdoor area and some indoor activities are available.

Lunchtime is at 12:30pm, please see the lunchtime tab for more information on this.

Our afternoons consist of different foundation subjects, including Art, SMSC, History, Science and PE. We are very lucky to be able to use the Community College sports hall for PE and have enjoyed activities such as trampolining!
