APPLE time is a transition from the play-based curriculum as experienced in Reception and Year 1 to the more independent learning as seen in Key Stage 2.
During APPLE time the children are doing practical and fun activities independently, based on the learning objective for that lesson.
This allows them to develop the resilience and confidence to become independent learners, while also allowing the teacher and TA to support and extend those children who are working on a main teaching activity.
The children love the opportunity to develop and extend their learning, while having fun. While the activities may be independent, the children are often given opportunities to work in pairs or as a team and therefore can develop the vital skills needed to successfully work with others.
