Tuesday 7th September
Message to Year 1 parents - Dear Parents/Carers, On Wednesday 15th September we are inviting all Year 1 children to dress up as something they would like to be when they are older. This is to kick off our new topic “When I grow up…”
Children spend lots of time dreaming and role-playing at the jobs they want to do when they grow up. Throughout this topic the children will explore the wide variety of jobs that are out there, with the aim of broadening their horizons and raising their aspirations.
They will start by looking close to home. Looking at the job roles within school and families. We will have visits from people sharing their jobs roles and experience as well as videos sent in from people within our local community. The children will learn about a variety of Musicians and Artists and will also explore jobs from the past and how they have evolved or that no longer exist.
We hope all children can join in with the fun on this day, please let us know if you need any help with costumes. Many thanks,
Mrs Winchcombe, Miss Dudley-Smith and Mr Allen

Dear Parents and Carers, Please find a letter from Mrs Lewis, Executive Head of Viking Academy Trust, attached below. School is open for children from 8:30 on Thursday 2nd September (Breakfast Club 7:30). Doors close for the start of the day at 8:50. The school day will end for all children at 3:15. There is no longer a requirement for face coverings - these are a personal choice. Gates at both sides of the school will be open at the start and end of the day for entry and exit (there is no longer a one way system) to reduce crowding and allow for social distancing. Please could we respectfully ask parents and carers to continue to consider the need for distancing on the school site. Year 3 and 4 children are collected from the top playground. Other year groups from classroom doors. If children in years 4-6 meet an adult off site or leave school by themselves, we will use permission for this from last year but if you have not given this previously - please use this link: https://app.keysurvey.co.uk/f/1204308/64dc/ After School Club will run until 6:00. We look forward to seeing you soon!
