Every morning we sit down together for milk and fruit. It is a great opportunity for us to have a really good chat together! Milk is free for children under five and the fruit is provided by the National Lottery. Our parents can order and pay for our milk on the cool milk website.

All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free school meal and most children in Tiger Cubs stay for a school dinner because they are yummy! They are nutritionally balanced and use local produce wherever possible. This is how we organise lunchtime in the Tiger Cubs.

When we have eaten our dinner we go out to play until 1:10pm. The midday supervisors let Mrs Miller or Mrs Avery know how we've been over lunchtime or if we haven't eaten our lunch. We are encouraged to try everything on our plate but the midday supervisors understand that sometimes there are things that we just don't like! Our teachers will always tell our parents if we haven't eaten much! 



We have playtimes in the morning, after lunch and in the middle of the afternoon. We try and go out whatever the weather because the fresh air is good for us! All classes come out at the same time and we all play together. We can play on the field and use the trim trail when it is dry.



We always have at least two role play areas in our classroom and one in our outdoor area. These are usually based around our topics. This term we have a home corner and a hospital.
This term we have a medical centre and a garden centre in the classroom and a home corner in the outdoor area.
On a Tuesday morning we have French, we have great fun!!!! We have already learned lots of songs and rhymes in French! These photos are of some of us doing the actions to our favourite French song!

Our Creative Area is always open! Sometimes our teachers set us a task to do but we are always free to explore our own ideas if we want to! We are all budding artists in the Tiger Cubs, we love painting, printing, sewing, sticking, box modelling and creating collages. We have looked at some famous works of art such as Van Gogh's Sunflowers and tried to recreate them. Have a look at a slide show of our box model robots we made at home by clicking here.
