Understanding which day comes next


Why is this important?
Knowing the days of the week and the events that occur on particular days
helps children learn routines. This is how children learn to understand and
describe time beyond what happens every day.

It also enables them to accept change when something different happens

(e.g. no swimming this Wednesday).

What to do
• Make a chart together. Put the days of the week across the top. It may
be helpful to do Monday–Friday in a different colour from Saturday–Sunday.
• Encourage the child to draw a picture of something he/she does each day

(e.g. swimming, PE, assembly, music).
• Talk about the activities in relation to the days of the week, e.g.

Adult: ‘On Monday you go swimming, and the day after
Monday is …?’

Pause to see if the child can fill in the missing day. Prompt him/her
by using his/her pictures (e.g. ‘You do PE on this day’).

Child: ‘Tuesday’ and adult repeats:
‘So the day after Monday is …?’

  • Through our Christian school and ethos, we all aim to believe in ourselves, each other, our teachers, leaders and parents. With reflection and prayer, we trust in God that our prayers will be heard. We know that every child is a child of Jesus, treating everyone with respect and dignity that they deserve.

    Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.
    Matthew 7:7


  • We aim to build our pupils’ and teachers’ confidence, delight in their teaching & learning and discipline in seeking wisdom; gaining the truth, knowledge, understanding and skills they will need in their everyday lives. We offer a broad and inspiring curriculum that nurtures emotional intelligence, creativity and remembering of important knowledge. We teach and learn collaboratively leading to our pupils developing the life skills of learning.

    For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding;
    Proverbs 2:6


  • We aim to be the best we can be. Whilst nurturing our pupils’ and staff, we encourage and drive them to aspire to achieve their hopes and dreams. We are honest in the fact that this will take hard work, perseverance and resilience.

    For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
    Jeremiah 29:11


  • Above all we aim to show compassion to ourselves and each other. By developing strong relationships and friendships we develop a true understanding of each other.

    ‘Love thy neighbour…’
    Luke 10:28


  • We are a family. We show compassion for all members of our community irrespective of gender, ethnicity, religion or sexuality. We strive to be ‘courageous advocates’ for our local, national and global community.

    There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus.
    Galatians 3:28
