Dear Parents and Carers,
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…
A huge thank you to the PTA for all the time and effort that went into arranging the virtual Christmas Fair. Thank you!
Reception and KS1 have been busy rehearsing and filming their Nativity plays. If your child is in one of those classes, you will be receiving a YouTube link (private) for you to view. We hope you enjoy the videos and we pray that we can resume the live performances next year!
The same will happen for KS2 - parents will receive a link to enjoy their carols and festive songs too.
A huge thank you to all the staff who have worked so hard on preparing the children for their performance.
We have a new member of our Holy Trinity Family – Miss Hing has welcomed the safe arrival of baby Sebastian this morning! Huge congratulations to the new family!
Is a busy one!
Reception and KS1 Christmas Party is on Tuesday afternoon. The children are welcome to wear their party clothes all day.
KS2 Christmas Party is on Wednesday afternoon. The children are welcome to wear their party clothes all day.
We are going down to church in our bubbles on Thursday afternoon for Christingle with Reverend Jon.
Christmas Mufti (this is our Christmas present to the children so there is no need to send any money in!) is on Friday and we finish at 1.30pm on Friday.
Teaching Assistant Vacancy
We are looking to recruit a Teaching Assistant in KS1 after Christmas. If you (or anyone you know) may be interested, please speak to Mrs Poulter in the office for an application pack.
Sadly, we are having to say goodbye to Mrs Jans at the end of next week too. We wish you all the very best in your new venture Mrs Jans. Thank you for all you have done for Holy Trinity - you will be missed!
Have a wonderful weekend all and we’ll see you on Monday.

Reception Class Nativity
This year's Reception class are amazing singers and their performance today for Year 1 and 2 was outstanding! We were so proud of them, their behaviour was brilliant and they all remembered their lines. We are disappointed that the parents weren't able to celebrate with us!
Year 4 Roman Day
Year 4 enjoyed a fun filled Roman day this week to finish off their learning about the Romans. They dressed as Emperors, traders, gladiators, slaves and soldiers. They made Roman shields and javelins, created mosaics and designed a gladiator training course, just to name a few of the fun activities!

Year 5 have been working hard at perfecting gymnastics sequences. Some of these can be found on the Year 5 Class Page. Please take a look here.

Mrs J. Griffith, Mrs C Barnes, Miss S. Harding, Mrs F Fargher
