Newsletter 33 - 20th May 2022

Dear Parents and Carers,

This has been another busy week in school!

Year 5 Residential

Year 5 enjoyed a 3 day residential to Leeson House in Dorset this week. I’d like to extend my thanks to the staff that accompanied them and enabled such a valuable experience to go ahead: Miss Harding, Mrs Hunter, Miss Lazar and Mrs Fargher. Thank you for taking time away from your own families to make the trip possible.


No Nuts Please

Thank you to parents for your donations of cakes for our Bake sale last week – it is always a popular sale! Please remember that no nut products can be on or in the cakes.


Class Photos

The school photographer will be coming to school on Monday morning to take whole class photos. If your child has PE on Mondays, please send them into school in the school uniform with their PE kit to change into.


Break the Rules Day

PTA and School Council have arranged Break the Rules day next Friday 27th May. We raised over £1000 last year for this event so we’re hoping the children will want to take part and break rules again this year! Look out for the form coming home for children to choose which rules they’d like to break. The children need to hand the forms and any monies to their class teacher on Break the Rules day.


Have a lovely weekend,


Mrs Griffith

Stars of the Week 

Well done to all of our Stars this week!

Reception - Charlotte for being so helpful and cheerful around the classroom.  Thomas for working so hard on his phonics this week.

Class 1 – Leo for his excellent technique in throwing a javelin and sharing his technique with his peers!  Great team work.

Class 2 – All of Year 2 this week for their incredibly mature approach to some top secret tasks that have almost been completed, but an extra special well done goes to Mohammed for his hard work and perseverance. 

Class 3 – Bryony for helping a friend in need by writing for her when her wrist was in a splint. 

Class 4 – Harry for showing great perseverance with his handwriting. 

Class 5 – The whole class for a fantastic few days away, getting involved in all activities and showing great resilience and perseverance as well as supporting one another.  

Class 6N – Vasilisa, Ivan and Olivia for settling in so well this week and getting involved with all things Holy Trinity.

Year 6W – Sonny for putting so much effort in to all of his pieces of writing this week.  

House of the Week
The House with the most house points this week is Water! Well done Water!

Year 5 Residential Trip to Leeson House

We'll have a proper write up for you next week, but in the meantime we wanted to share this lovely photo with you! 

Year 5 Ravenous Readers

Here are this week's Ravenous Readers.  Amelia has now completed the reading list – congratulations! Her favourite book was The Story of Tracy Beaker.

Badminton Success!

On Sunday I partook in a badminton tournament that marked the jubilee of the club (Swifts) that I go to. I played in the under 12 girls' section and played people from different badminton clubs as well as my own. Amid these people were really experienced players that had been playing for more that 4 years; it was a hard one. Luckily, my doubles partner and I put up a good fight and managed to secure second place!  This is also known as Plate Winner.  I am very proud of myself because we beat people I didn't expect to and all my shots were great!  I hope I can do just as well in the next tournament.

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).
