Midday Assistants and Lunchtimes
In our Abingdon Family we have lots of other staff who come to help us at lunchtimes. Our dedicated Midday team provide supervision, support, fun and games during the lunch hour. We use Active lunchtime actitivtes to keep the children busy at lunchtime.
We also have a number of clubs running at lunchtime:
- Mr Cumberbatch runs a 'Quiet Club' on Monday and Friday. Children are specifically chosen to attend. At the club, children play quiet board games, do mindful colouring and read.
- Chess Club runs on Thursday - Mr Cumberbatch
- Reading clubs run throughout the week for KS1 (Thursday), LKS2 (Tuesday) and UKS2 (Wednesday). The children sign up for these in class.
At Abingdon, we expect that our core values 'Respect, Resilience and Responsibilty' are shown at all times by our children. Our lunchtime team give out stickers and certificates to reward for children who are showing our 3 core values at lunchtime. At the end of the week, each Midday Assistant chooses someone in their class who has stood out to be part of the Golden Table on Friday. They also give out certificates on Friday in Celebration Time to reward good behaviour.
'The Golden Table'
The Golden table is a special table in the hall on a Friday - It is decorated gold! The children who are chosen from each class by our Middays because of their excellent lunchtime behaviour. They are served their lunch by our Deputy Headteacher (Ms Flanders) and are given a prize from the Gold Box!
Our Midday Supervisors are;
