Start/ end timings
Children in Oak Class are expected to be sat in class learning from 8.55am. Learning finishes at 3.30pm and children will be allowed home minutes after this.
Children have a mid-morning break for 15 minutes and an hour for lunch. KS2 pupils do not have a mid-afternoon break but may at times be taken out for some fresh air as a brain break.
Children at Sabden have very good behaviour with lots of good modelling displayed by children across the day. Children in Key Stage 2 do not have a rewards system for good behaviour as it is an expectation, not a choice. We do have a house point system where children are rewarded for exceeding expectations in their respect, level of challenge and resilience.
Children choose reading books at their level and when finished they are welcome to choose new book from our large selection of books in school. Children do not have a set reading book ‘swap’ day but are expected to have their school planner daily for recording reading in school and at home. Books can also be accessed virtually through the class login for Oxford Owl, which you should receive from your class teacher.
PE sessions are run twice a week on Tuesday and Wednesday. Pupils wear a separate PE uniform on these days. The uniform is a white crew neck t-shirt or polo shirt, black leggings/joggers or when appropriate black shorts and basic, all black trainers. On PE days children do not wear ‘normal’ school uniform.
Continued learning at home
Sabden offers a range of online programmes for pupils to undertake at home. This includes Times Tables Rockstars, Spelling Shed, Maths Shed, Oxford Owl and Get Epic! to name a few.
Children take part in two school questionnaires each year and several specific surveys throughout the year. Children in Oak Class have the opportunity to serve the school as Reading Buddies, School Council, Wellbeing Warriors, Playground Buddies. We also hold a yearly election for the roles of head boy and girl and deputy head boy and girl to represent the school.
