Dear Parents and Carers,
We hope you all enjoyed half term. Thank you to the children for their amazing outfits for World Book Day – it was so great to celebrate in such a fun way in school. A thank you to the PTA for arranging the Book Sale too. Promoting the love of reading is vital for growing our children as readers.
Parents Consultation Evenings
You will have received my letter informing you that these meetings will take place on Tuesday 22nd and Thursday 24th March. Please look out for an email prompting you to book a 10 minute time slot.
These meetings will take place in the hall and you will have a chance to look through your child’s books as well.
The numbers in our Breakfast Club have reduced significantly for various reasons. We know that a lot of parents are no longer commuting into offices so have not needed the morning child-care facility. We are now in a position of reviewing this provision and would welcome your views about possible future need. We would be very reluctant to stop offering Breakfast Club, however we may not be able to afford to continue if numbers remain low.
Information about our Breakfast Club can be found here.
Please take a moment to complete this short questionnaire about Breakfast Club provision.
I’m sure you are all feeling as we are and would like to be able to offer help in some way to the people of Ukraine. We will be collecting donations on behalf of the Clewer Scout & Guide Group and Slough Polish Association. They have requested donations of:
If you would like to make a donation, please bring to school before Friday 11th March and we will arrange to deliver them to the collection point in Windsor. If any parents would like to volunteer to help with transporting the donations please let me know.
I do hope you all enjoy the weekend,

House of the Week
The House with the most house points this week is Water! Well done Water!
Please can you be sure to arrive at school before the gates close promptly at 8.55am. Late arrivals are disruptive to the school office, class routines and teaching which is well underway by 9am. In addition, it's noticeable that some children are uncomfortable entering the class or assembly hall late after their peers. Many thanks for your help with this.

Year 4 have made their Iron Men come alive!
The children have really enjoyed reading and studying The Iron Man this half term and learning all about electricity in Science. During DT, the children designed their Iron Man and selected the materials and tools that they would use to make him. This week, we put it all together and made an Iron man with a working electrical circuit with two lights, for the Iron Man's eyes.
The Year 2 bake sale made an amazing £229.50 – we hope you enjoyed all the delicious bakes!
❤❤ The winners of the Valentines Raffle have now been contacted, if you haven’t already done so, could you please collect your prizes from Mrs Lawson in the School Office. We are delighted to confirm the raffle made a fantastic £1,012 ❤❤
As the school had to close on the last day of term and the children missed their mufti day, this has been re-arranged and will be held next Friday 11th March.

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).
