This week, the children all stayed at school for lunch. We had lots of new routines to learn. We have to:
Wash our hands,
Line up in order of food types,
Fetch our lunch boxes / get served our meals and fetch cutlery and a drink,
Sit down in the dinner hall,
Tidy up after we’ve finished eating,
Go out of the hall door onto the playground,
Line up on the Gruffalo line when the whistle blows.
The Reception staff stayed in the dinner hall with the children and were very impressed with how everyone coped with the new routines!!!
Parents – you could help to support your child’s independence skills further by showing your child how to open packets (if s/he has a packed lunch) or to use a knife and fork to cut up food (if s/he has hot dinners).
