Break and Lunch Time Provision

Break Time at Gwladys Street


At Gwladys Street, we provide children with FREE fruit in Key Stage 1 and Nursery and Reception (EYFS)


In Key Stage 2, pupils can purchase a piece of fruit daily for 20p from our Year 6 children.   We also offer toast on Thursday break time for 10p a slice. 


All our fruit is provided from a local company 'Total Produce' reducing our Carbon Footprint and supporting our local economy.

Remembrance Day

What happens at lunchtime?


Lunchtime begins at 12.00 pm for Key Stage 2 classes and at 12.10 pm for Foundation and Key Stage 1 classes. Foundation and Key Stage 1 have free play from 12.10 pm and then come over to the dining hall.  Key Stage 2 go for lunch first and after eating their lunch in the hall, children have free play time until 1.00 pm.


Foundation and Key Stage 1 pupils, after eating lunch return to the playground for free play until 1:20 pm.


Play and lunchtime are important times of the day for the children in terms of their personal, social, emotional and physical development.

At Gwladys Street Community Primary and Nursery School, we are developing the quality of lunchtime play to enrich children’s experiences.  Equipment includes: Poddely, giant connect four, footballs and netballs, rackets and smaller balls, skipping ropes, balancing boards, hoops, karaoke and books. Pupils also have access to our community garden where they can explore nature using a range of equipment. Children are also able to colour, draw or write using equipment provided by the school.


We are also in the process of providing two Maths hubs where children can explore Mathematical concepts through games and the use of practical resources.  We also provide structured lunchtime clubs including; ICT, choir, guitar and Mathletics. These clubs allow children to develop skills in other areas and allow children who seek quieter activities the opportunity to mix with like minded pupils.  


We monitor lunch time and play time provision by regularly taking feedback from pupils and are constantly seeking to improve this very important part of the children’s day and we welcome any feedback or suggestions from parents.
