At my DS's school the KS2 pupils have lunchtime from 12.30 - 1.30 then they have no break until they leave at 3.25. Just wanted to know if this was the norm, as I think this is a long time to be sat in a classroom, with no break.
My school has no afternoon break at all - the children go back into school after lunch at 1p.m. and school finishes at 3p.m. It does not seem to be a problem for them. They don't get an hour for lunch either! (think it's 45 mins but not sure.)
Thanks for the replys. Prior to the move to a new school building they did have an afternoon break. They haven't changed the finishing time, but KS1 and KS 2 now share a playground, whereas before they had there own, wonder if this is something to do with the change. Know they are not sat still for all this time, most afternoons they have assembly at some point, last thing most days, cue lots of children nearly asleep
