Newsletter 13 - 8th December 2023

Dear Parents and Carers,

Well we’ve had a wonderful end to our week this morning with the Reception Class Nativity. The children were delightful and the room was full of pride. A huge thank you to Mrs Tomes, Mrs Free and Mrs Bennett for preparing the children so well.


We look forward to Key Stage 1 performances next week (1.30pm on Monday and 9.15am on Tuesday).


Key Stage 2 will be leading our Christmas Service in Holy Trinity Church on Monday evening at 6pm. All are welcome.


We are collecting (cash donations only) for the foodbank at Holy Trinity Church at the end of all the performances – thank you in advance for your generosity.


We were also super proud of the choir when they visited Lynwood Care Home yesterday. I know their beautiful singing made a big impression and was very much appreciated.

The choir will also be singing at the Christmas Light Switch On this evening at Broomhall Park so why not join them to feel the magic?

Holy Trinity Choir Visit Lynwood Care Centre

Holy Trinity’s KS2 choir were invited to bring some Christmas cheer to the residents, families and staff of Lynwood Care Centre on Thursday 7th December 2023.

The children sang beautifully and the residents really enjoyed seeing the children perform.  We would like to also thank Lynwood for the refreshments provided and the opportunity to talk to the staff and residents – a rewarding experience for everyone. 

Christmas Parties

Reception Class and KS1 parties will be on Tuesday afternoon and KS2 parties will be on Wednesday afternoon.  Children may wear their own clothes to school on the day of their party.  Please make sure shoes are sensible for wearing outside at break times.  


Christmas Lunch

We look forward to Christmas Lunch on Wednesday next week!  Please see the Wilson Jones menu below.

Gardening Club 

Thank you for the beans for the arch and all the other contributions for our school allotment.  In gardening club this week, the children continued to make pathways and decorate the site. They have transplanted broccoli & planted bare root raspberries... they also made some lovely signs, we’ll need to work on the spellings :-)

In other gardening news, we have achieved Level 1 of the RHS School Gardening Awards, benefiting from some lovely seeds and an RHS book for school 'Your Wellbeing Garden'.
