Did you know that we now have real plates, bowls, glasses and even lanterns on the table at lunchtimes and are working hard to encourage conversation around the dinner table? The Healthy Eating and Tuck Shop Pupil Voice Group has been proactively working to improve lunchtime provision for our children.
We have also introduced a number of different options for the children to choose where they would like to spend their free time. They can now choose to be outside, in the library; playing board games, attend a quiet room for drawing and sometimes even attend a specialist sports club.
As part of these improvements we have brought in two dining hall sittings, to make sure that children are not waiting too long for their dinner.
EYFS and Key Stage 1 eat lunch between 11.45am – 12.15pm in the hall. After they have eaten their lunch they can then choose from one of the activities mentioned above.
Key Stage 2 have lunch at 12.15pm - 12.45pm. Lunchtime starts at 12.00pm, where they can choose from one of the activities above before and after they go for lunch.
Lunchtime break for all children still finishes at 12.55pm.
We will be encouraging parents and carers to join us for lunch, so stay tuned!
