9.35 – WORK TIME  – The children are encouraged to do whatever activities they have planned and at this time are free to work in all areas of the nursery, exploring materials, learning new skills and trying out their ideas.  This is all achieved through well-planned play.

10.15 – TIDY UP TIME – The children tidy away materials they have been working with.  This is a valuable learning experience for children, it develops their self-help skills and a sense of responsibility for their environment as well as encouraging them to co-operate with and help others.

10.25 – SNACK AND RECALL TIME – The children review what they have been doing by rejoining their own group of children and staff members with whom they planned and telling them about their work time activities.  This helps to develop children’s communication and language and literacy skills.

11.00 – OUTSIDE PLAY – This is a time when all the children go outside and explore and investigate the outdoor learning environment, developing their skills of knowledge and understanding of the world.  It also helps to develop the children’s physical skills.
