The School Day
Every day can be a different experience at Old Buckenham Hall. To get a brief insight into a typical day at the school.
A typical day:
|08.20||I arrive at school and go to my classroom to meet my friends|
|08.30||My form teacher arrives and we have registration, then we go to assembly|
|08.55||My first lesson is Maths, we are drawing pie charts|
|09.30||I have double PE next – we have orienteering around the park|
|10.40||Time for break, I’m really hungry after all that running – a flapjack and squash|
|11.05||English now, we are finding out about constructing essays properly and are writing about “Flour Babies” which we have just finished reading|
|11.40||French – we are getting ready for our oral exams next week, so we are having conversations in French about holidays|
|12.15||Drama – we are producing TV adverts in small groups|
|12.50||Lunch time – I sit on a table with my form teacher and the others in my form. Beef stew and new potatoes today, followed by chocolate crunch|
|13.50||Double science, we are learning about electricity and static
– we make our hair go frizzy!
|15.00||Games – this afternoon it is hockey|
|16.20||Time for sandwiches and juice or I can go home with my prep|
|16.40||Prep – French vocab and finishing my RS project|

Pupils in Years 3 – 5 who stay beyond 16.20 spend half an hour in their
classrooms doing prep before enjoying a variety of activities including uni-hoc,
tennis and choir until collection at 17.40.
