|Arrival at St. Marks.
The school agers place their backpacks along the side of the church and participate in free choice outdoor activities, group games or sports.
Outdoor time may vary according to the children’s interests and the weather. Staying within ratios, one group may remain outside longer and one group may go inside earlier.
During inclement weather, the group goes inside. Gross motor activities take place during this time, either in one big group or in smaller groups, based on the number of children in attendance and what games are chosen. Gross motor activities take place for at least twenty minutes, based on the children’s interests.
