A Typical day at our school

A Typical day at Canklow in Key Stage 1 and 2:

At 8:40am classroom doors open and children are greeted by their teachers.   

Mornings at Canklow school are full of lessons ranging from numeray, reading, writing, spelling and grammar, often PE or music.  Each class has its's own timetable, which you will see on the class pages. 

Maths Worskhop

All children will take part in a Maths Workshop on entering the classroom- this is when children will complete various maths challenges over the week to consolidate and secure learning.  This is also a very important time for children as staff will work with them on a individual basis to secure learning from the previous day or give a preteach session so children have a good start to new learning that day.


In all classes Reading sessions follow.  This will include Read Write Inc for Key stage One and Foundation Stage and Reciprocal Reading for Key stage 2.

Reading is followed by Writing, Spelling and grammar lessons and numeracy.   Each class also has a morning PE session too, and often music lessons take place during a morning in some classes.

Our morning break is  10:45 am  11:00 am.  Lunch is currently from 11.40-12.30 for Key Stage 1 and 12.00-12.50 for Key stage 2.


Afternoons will vary depending on each class.  A typical afternoon will include handwriting, and a variety of other subjects such as Science, Religious Education, PE, History,Geography, Art, Design Technology, Music, PSHE and Spanish in Key Stage 2.  

Our School day finishes at 3:05pm
