Shining Stars (Extended Hours)
Shining Stars are children who access our wrap around care or our extended hours.
The children access their morning session as normal and then go for their dinner in the main school hall with Miss Banks at 12:00pm.
From 1:05pm-3:05pm the children are provided with a wide range of different learning opportunities and benefit from small group activities with Mrs. Broughton.
The afternoon session also allows the children to revisit their new learning and knowledge through extended activities.
If you have any questions regarding the extended hours session please see Mrs. Broughton for any additional information or advice.
