Before School K-6 Routines
The Leadership Team at Lyneham Primary provide before school supervision as this time in the morning is an important organisational time for our classroom teachers.
Children from Kindergarten to Year 6 play in the senior playground area from 8.30am each morning. We request that when children arrive at school they take their bags to the Bienvenue area where they can meet with friends, play a game or stretch their legs before the day begins. The children remain in this area so that classroom teachers can continue to prepare their lessons uninterrupted during this busy organisational part of the day.
The whole school community then comes together to greet each other for Bienvenue (our morning welcome). This community time is often lead by the students and is a lovely way to begin the day.
Our classes start promptly at 9.00am. We appreciate children being able to begin the school day at 9.00am, however 'life happens' at times and some days just don't run to plan! If you have delivered your child to school after classes have begun, please sign them into school through the Front Office, and then help us by encouraging your child to go straight into the activity being undertaken (they'll know what is required as we start all mornings in a similar fashion) and wishing them the best for their day ahead.
It is difficult once the school day has started to have discussions with classroom teachers as they are required to lead and supervise the other children and the learning activities that are in progress. You may like to catch up with your child's teacher in the afternoon or leave a message at the Front Office for a return phone call. It is wonderful to have settled classrooms and learning beginning by 9.10am each morning.
