- The Atrium doors at 8.35am for drop off.
- Collection from the classroom fire exit door at 2.55pm.
- Lunches are the same system as normal - please book them online or contact the office for help.

We are REALLY looking forward to seeing all of the children having a buzzing classroom again! If there are any concerns or anxieties please do get in contact with us through the office.

Please note - as we did before the break, we aim to have the classroom doors and windows open throughout the day as much as possible to allow the air to circulate. We would recommend that your child wears a vest under their uniform!
Spellings: The spellings sheet will typically come home on a Tuesday, to be returned by Monday the following week.
Reading: Where possible, reading should happen at home daily. Ideally your child will read to an adult/older sibling out loud. They also have access to Bug Club online from home. https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/login?c=0 , Password is ppp and the School Code is wcvy. Your child's log in is in the front of their reading diary.
Maths: Children have access to 'My Maths' where work relevant to our class learning will be available.
Please bring the library book back each week so your child can renew it or swap it for a new one.
Wednesday and Friday
PE kits should be in school for the half term (including joggers and fleece). No earrings to be worn on PE days please.
