At Hatfield Academy we have a staggered lunchtime with Reception & KS1 children dining between 11.30 – 12.15, Y3 & Y4 between 12.00 – 12.45 and Y5 & Y6 12.30 – 1.15.
In Year 5 and 6, the children take part in Family Dining. This encourages children to sit together around a table, serve each other and tidy away after each other. This promotes independence, good expectations, teamwork and conversation between the children. The children love it!
