Westonzoyland Primary School ‘Achieving, Learning and Growing Together’

Information for parents


This is what our timetable typically looks like- we have assemblies 3 times a week...
9:00-9:40 Phonics (RWI)- each week there is a new book that these sessions are based around. We start with speed sounds every day (should be in the pack) and then do green and red words. Then each day we do spellings, comprehension and hold a sentence around these books ending in a spelling test at the end of the week. They will be sat down learning throughout this time.
9:45-10:30 Maths (they will be sat on the carpet for input from 10-20 minutes and then the rest is completing activities). 
10:30 Snack We try and do snack but sometimes they have this during break as they are busy with their maths. 
10:45 Break 
11:00 Finishing off maths/independent reading of school book or a free read.

We also do handwriting roughly 3 times a week practising our high frequency sounds and our letter formation.

11:15 English (again 10-20 minutes input and the rest spent on tasks).
12:30 Lunch 
1:40-2:00 Assembly (dependent on the weather we will go outside in the afternoon for 10/15 minutes and take out chalks or drawing things to give them a well deserved break when assembly is not on). 
2:00-3:00 Topic  (Science/History/Cross-Curricular Writing)- 10/15 minutes on carpet and the rest doing topic work. 
3:00 Story time- We always end the day with story time. 
It's is worth noting that sometimes our lessons take longer because we have to ensure everyone has a good understanding of a concept before we start an activity and you are working 1:1 at home so your children have continued support throughout.


I would recommend that you give your children times where they complete learning independently, you can still support them with bits of their work and look together at what they have produced at the end encouraging them to spot possible mistakes such as forgetting a capital letter or full stop so they can edit their work. However, they have been working hard on becoming more independent in their work and it would be great if they could continue to develop this vital skill to make them successful learners.


As I mentioned in the email I sent to all parents in Buzzard class, please do not worry about completing everything that we would do in a day. This timetable is here to support everyone in structuring the day and I hope it can be a useful tool for you. From the emails I have received I can see that you are all doing an amazing job. I have really enjoyed reading what you are doing!
