Dear Parents and Carers,
Well, Year 6 have been a credit to you all this week as they approached their SATs calmly and maturely. Well done to all of them. And a huge thank you to all the staff involved in preparing them and supporting them this week.
Year 5 will be going on their residential stay next week for 3 days and we look forward to hearing all about it when they return.
Asthma Coffee Morning
A reminder that we are hosting a coffee morning from 9am next Friday 20th May for any parents who wish to discuss any asthma-related queries with the asthma nursing team.
We are looking forward to our fair on 25th June. Please put the date in your diary and let your PTA rep know if you’re able to help on the day – all help is greatly appreciated!
Enjoy the weekend,

Census Day - Change to Menu
On Thursday 19th May the menu will be a choice of Fish and Chips, Cheese and Onion Puff or Jacket Potato. Choosing a school lunch on Thursday helps us with our school funding! Friday's menu will be a direct swap with Thursday with choices of Beef Lasagne, Veggie Meatballs or Jacket Potato.
Reception Trip to Rushall Farm
The day began drizzly but didn't dampen any spirits on our Reception Farm trip and ended in glorious sunshine. The children behaved beautifully throughout the day enjoying all the different activities.
Some highlights were.....feeding the chickens, finding a newt, bumping along in the tractor, seeing the new bee hive and exploring the woodland area.
Reception Class - Wheelbarrow Gardening Challenge!
Mrs Tomes will be entering the Royal Windsor Flower Show with a Wheelbarrow put together by Reception Class again this year. If you're able to donate any plants or compost we would be very grateful. We are looking forward to seeing the final creation which is always wonderful!
Many thanks indeed.
The Queen's Green Canopy Project - Commemorative Planting Event
The Royal Ascot Racecourse arranged a marvellous occasion this week to commemorate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and the Queen’s Green Canopy Project. Our representative for this event was Jake in Year 5 who attended with his Mum. A tree was planted for each participating school and there was a rather nice lunch for all the attendees. Please click here for more information and see photos below.

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
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).
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
