Dear Parents and Carers,
Hopefully, you will have seen this letter that I sent to you all yesterday explaining the changes that will be in place from Monday 31st January in school. Our Covid cases have remained relatively low and I thank you for all the LF testing and vigilance that’s going on at home. Of course, the virus hasn’t disappeared so I ask that you continue to keep testing your children in order to identify positive cases quickly.
We look forward to welcoming February next week and the ever-closer arrival of springtime. However, it is still very cold at times so please send your child with additional layers as we are still keeping our classrooms well ventilated.
Enjoy your weekend,
Stars of the Week for w/e – 28th January 2022
Well done to all of our Stars this week.
Class 1 – Caitlin for working so hard this week on her phonics and applying it in her writing.
Class 2 – Millie for having a positive approach to her learning.
Class 3 – Phoebe F for her enthusiasm towards learning and always presenting her work beautifully.
Class 4 – Luke for a fabulous electricity presentation explaining how a circuit works.
Class 5 – Etta for always making good choices towards her learning, behaviour and relationships with everyone.
Class 6N – Ava for being so independent in her learning. She always shows real perseverance with wanting to do her best.
Year 6W – Flo for always doing her best in everything she does and for recognising when she needs to ask for support – a very wise learner!
House of the Week
The House with the most house points this week is Fire! Well done Fire!
A Huge Thank You from Mr and Mrs Hill
Mr and Mrs Hill would like to say thank you so much for your generosity, kindness and love in responding to the GoFundMe appeal for a compact and lightweight wheelchair for Mr Hill. The amount needed was reached in a very short time and the wheel chair was bought and delivered this week! Money raised in excess of the amount needed for the chair will be put towards building a ramp to help with access to and from the house.
Chinese New Year Menu
On Tuesday 1st February, Wilson Jones will be serving up a delicious celebratory menu. Please see below for all the details!
Charters School have a vacancy for a Cover Manager. This is a term time only role. Please click here for more details.
Plastic Bottle Collection - One Week Only!
Local business ATOM, need to produce a large display made of many different plastic bottles, tubs and trays. Could you help them by supplying the plastic? We have agreed to collect plastic bottles and tubs for one week, starting on Monday 31st January, to help ATOM gather the raw materials for their project. Please see more details below of the types of bottles needed. Washed bottles can be brought in to school reception. Many thanks for your help with this.
We have yet again had several instances of inconsiderate parking at drop off and pick up times, including a car parked so badly this week that the bus route on Church Road was completely blocked. Please consider the impact you have on neighbours, your children and particularly children walking to and from school, when you choose where to leave your vehicle.
Field and Football Boots
We ask that children wear trainers without studs of any sort during breaks and lunchtimes, as well as for ‘Mile A Day’ activities. However, children are allowed to wear football boots for football clubs. This is to protect our field so that we can keep it in use as much as possible. Many thanks.
KS1 Theatre Visit
On Tuesday KS1 and Reception class were treated to a visit by the Pied Piper Theatre Company. This year they were performing Robin's Winter Adventure about a boy moving to London and his reluctance to leave the countryside behind. The children sat beautifully as they enjoyed listening to the story unfold. Reception class followed up this play with a DT project designing their own house for a mini-person.
Year 5 Science
In science this week, Year 5 explored the effect of upthrust in water on the weight of objects.
Year 5 Ravenous Readers
Year 5 pupils have been devouring books again this week. Here are our ravenous readers! Charan has read Dragon Rider.

School Term Dates
Please see here for term dates:
Although tempting as we have not been able to travel freely for so long, please do not book holidays or family days during term time. Missing even one or two days learning can be detrimental to your child's learning. Holiday absences will show up as persistent absence which is checked by Ofsted when they visit and monitored closely each half term by the Education Welfare Officer at RBWM. Thank you
Holy Trinity CE Primary School take safeguarding very seriously. If you have a concern, please do not hesitate to report to our designated staff;
Mrs J. Griffith, Mrs C Barnes, Miss S. Harding, Mrs F Fargher
Please do not send your child to school if they're unwell or with a high temperature controlled by paracetamol or ibuprofen. Don't forget that your child must not return to school until at least 48 hours after the last episode of any gastric upset (vomiting or diarrhoea).
Once again Magpies will be at Holy Trinity School for their action packed Holiday Club in half term. See the attachment below and click here to book!
