Dear Parents and Carers,
This week 5C have enjoyed their Bikeability course. I really hope they are able to continue to develop their cycling skills outside of school and benefit from the physical activity too. Well done Year 5!
Reception Class, Year 1 and Year 2 had a visit from a theatre company this week – I saw lots of smiling faces as they were entertained! Year 1 and Year 2 also have dance workshops on Monday as part of our school topic of ‘Celebrating our Wild and Wonderful World’.
The photographer will be coming to school on Monday 17th May to take class photographs. Please remember to send your child in school uniform that day rather than PE kit. They can bring their PE to change into once they’ve had their smart class photo taken!
Collection from after school clubs
We have three clubs on a Thursday after school. In order to ensure you can maintain social distancing when collecting your children, please enter onto the playground and find the correct queue for your club. We will signpost which queue is for which club!
PTA film night is on Tuesday 18th May. The children will remain in their bubble. Please see the PTA section below for more details or watch out on Classlist for your PTA rep to post further details of how to pay and timings.
Relationships, Health and Sex Education Policy
As you may be aware, a revised statutory curriculum for Relationships, Health and Sex Education is now in place for schools. At Holy Trinity, we are currently sharing our new policy with parents. You can see a copy of this below. This includes information about what aspects are taught in each year group. We will also be asking for any questions you may have in the coming weeks via an online questionnaire so that we can put together a FAQ document for you.
Enjoy the weekend,

House of the Week
The House with the most house points this week is Water! Well done Water!
Please make sure children wear PE kit to school on days when they have a sports club. This includes football - football kits should not be worn or brought to change in to at the moment.
Thursdays - on Thursdays lots of children attend clubs after school. We will open the gate for parents to line up and collect their children in the playground so that you are able to maintain social distancing and club leaders can see clearly who is picking up the children. Club leaders will tick the register rather than parents signing out. Hopefully this will relieve the pressure for everyone at the gate.
Change to Lunch Menu - Thursday 20th May
Thursday 20th May is Census Day in school and it is useful for us if as many children as possible have a school meal on that day. The menu will be changed to:
Thursday 20th May is National Read to Your Siblings Day. Older children get a fabulous sense of responsibility and make wonderful role models for their younger siblings. Snuggling up reading a book together is fantastic for bonding and seeing their older siblings read to them will encourage the younger ones to follow suit. As you will know only too well, reading aloud to each other helps children enhance their communication skills and comprehension, as well as boosting their speech, vocabulary and language.

KS1 and Reception Class were treated to another outstanding performance from Pied Piper Productions this week. The 45 minute production of 'Zoom!' had the audience captivated. The children sat beautifully and loved the story of Molly. Molly is an enthusiastic star gazer and unexpectedly a spaceship lands in her garden and Leelo (an alien) appears. The play tells how Molly helps to mend Leelo's spaceship and talks about how we need to look after our planet and not be wasteful.
Class 4’s Bug Hunt
On Thursday afternoon, class 4 ventured over to Forest School to conduct a bug hunt. In science, they have been learning about livings things and how to classify them. After they had made friends with many different woodland creatures, they created their own branching keys to identify them.
Year 4 Ravenous Readers
Here are this week's Ravenous Readers. Planet Stan was read by Hristiana.
Year 6 Athletics
