TV and reception class


Hi

My lo has just started reception class and I have noticed they have a huge tV and they all sit and watch CBeebies when they go in. Then at snack they sit on the mat and watch it then again at home time.

I don't know why it surprised me. They didn't have this at preschool they sat and had a story or did singing. Preschool seemed so much stricter. It's probably just to help them settle in.
Just wondering if anyone else's reception class does it?

School seems so different from when I went haha

They watch TV at breakfast club in the girls school, I'm not sure on other times or rainy days.

Sounds like a calm time but like you say whatever happened to story time!!!!

I remember having it on rainy days at play time or as a treat at the end of term. I have to admit I've never seen a class of 30 children so quiet! Haha

My son mentioned they watch it but I don't think it's an every day thing. I'm not sure how happy I would be if it was every day!!

I'm on the fence at the mo. I don't mind her watching it, just surprised. It's still early days maybe they will phase it out?

If that's every day then that's quite a lot of tv time considering most children watch at home as well, wouldn't like that, it ought to be a treat sometimes not every day.

DD1 just started receiption and they have been watching the TV . They used to watch it in nursery too .

They don't watch it everyday and not as often in the day as your school . I think they mainly watch some program about a dog lol . Come outside or something it's called . DD1 loves it !

I wouldn't be happy if that was an every day occurance a group story time is much more beneficial in my opinion. Can understand the odd treat on a rainy day but 2-3 times a day is excessive I feel.

Wow, it's not something I've ever heard of! I can imagine it would go down like a lead balloon at my kids school; there are quite a few families in my children's classes who are screen free or have TV time only at weekends (not me, I'm terrible for putting the TV on ).
