As our children move into Key Stage 1 their education starts to become more formal with all subjects in the National Curriculum being allocated a set teaching time.
Key Stage 1 as part of the school day
8.45 – 9.55
10.15 – 12.10
1.10 – 2.20
2.30 – 3.10
Total time in school (excl. break & lunch)
5 hrs per day or 25 hrs per week
Actual teaching time
22 hrs 15 mins per week
In September 2005 the Government made it compulsory for all teachers to spend 10% of teaching time out of their classroom. This will give them more time for planning, preparing and assessing children’s work.
