Our School day
We have busy, full days here at Ripley Juniors! We have days full of learning, enjoyment and new experiences.
Full detail about our school day and curriculum can be found in our school prospectus, but here is a brief overview of our school day:
8.45am: School gates open for all pupils both onto the playground and at the front entrance.
8.45 - 8.55am: Children come into school and, as per our 'soft start' to the day, they head straight to their classrooms for their morning 'check in'.
8.55am: Each class completes their register and learning starts for the day.
10.30am - 10.45am: Year 3 & 4 Break time. This is an opportunity for children to play, socialise and enjoy the healthy snack they've bought in from home.
10.55am - 11.10am: Year 5 & 6 Break time. This is an opportunity for children to play, socialise and enjoy the healthy snack they've bought in from home.
12.15pm: All children have an hour for their lunchtime to eat and play.
1.15pm: Afternoon learning begins. Classes may choose to have a brain break or a class walk during this time.
3.30pm: The school day ends for all children unless they are taking part in a club or activity. Children from Year 3 and 4 are dismissed onto the playground and children from Year 5 and Year 6 are dismissed at the main entrance.
