Dear Parents and Carers,
Well, so much has been going on these past two weeks – it’s a full newsletter!
Thank you to all those who were able to join us for Sports Day last week. The children had a great time and I hope you all did too!
A big thank you to Miss Harding and the Y6 House Captains for organising and running the events.
Y6 Production of ‘Ye-Ha!’
A huge well done to all the Y6 pupils for their wonderful performances on Monday and Tuesday evening. A great time was had by all. Y5 did a great job supporting too.
So much work goes into putting on such a great performance so a big thank you to all the children for learning their parts, and to the staff involved in preparing the children so well: Mrs Neale, Miss Wallbanks, Mrs Hunter and Mrs Marriner.
Key Stage 2 Adventure Playground
It has been a long time coming, but we have a date (11th July) for the work to start. So many people to thank in helping to fund-raise and those who have donated so generously. It’ll be so exciting to see all the hard work pay off!

Year 6 Production - Ye-Ha!
What fun Year 6 had with their production of Ye-Ha at the Cordes Hall this week, ably supported by the Year 5 Chorus. Lots of hard work went in to the production which really showed and the audience gave great feedback. Here are a few photos:
Reception Class Exhibit at the Royal Windsor Flower Show
Mrs Tomes and Reception Class entered two competitions at the Royal Windsor Flower Show this year, one for a planted wheelbarrow and one for growing potatoes. Alan Titchmarch helped children empty out and search for their potatoes and Sophie, Countess of Wessex weighed them! We didn't win a competition this year but we had a really lovely morning in the Great Park and the children who managed to get along enjoyed all that the flower show had to offer.
Y5 Ravenous Readers
Here are our latest Ravenous Readers! Charan has read Varjak Paw and Hristiana Artemis Fowl and the Arctic Incident and Sky Song. Please see details of the RBWM Libraries Summer Reading Challenge below.
This weekend, I entered the EYC (English Youth Championships) for fencing. My friend, Lawrence, came with me along with my coaches, Cat and Antonio. We started off with the poule; it's basically a league that depends on if you win or lose. We then went on to the DEs (Direct Elimination). Unfortunately I lost in the first round yet we were closely matched. It was a really fun experience.
Harry M - Class 6W
We are very much looking forward to our Summer Fair tomorrow. Please come along and support the School and PTA and enjoy the class stalls, fun games, inflatables, sweet treats, BBQ and drinks, along with some great external stallholders.
A big thank you for your hamper, sweet and bottle donations.
The Winkworths boards should be removed by the end of next week. Thank you again for those who agreed to have these.
Our Auction remains open for online bidding until midnight tonight, so please take a look at our fantastic Brochure and place your bid by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with your BEST offer for your Lot of choice!
For those of you attending the Fair, bidding will then go live again during the Fair for in person bids. The highest bidder for each Lot will be notified next week.
Asthma Coffee Morning
We have managed to reschedule the Asthma Coffee Morning which will now be at 9am on Thursday 7th July. Members of the Paediatric Respiratory team from Frimley Health will be here to chat with you informally and to answer any questions you have about asthma or wheeziness in children.
Charters School has vacancies for teaching assistants. Click here for more information.
New Scout Hut - Planning Permission Underway
After careful consideration 1st Sunningdale Scouts have submitted our plans to RBWM to rebuild the existing Scout Hut (app no. 22/01529). It will make a huge difference to a lot of young people and our volunteer leaders in the local community to have a safe, fresh and more user-friendly hut with fully functioning facilities. This will also provide the chance to increase opportunity for young people in the area to join the excitement. We know that, as well as already being a great local facility for many who live in the local villages, there are a lot of people who really want to join us but we can’t accommodate them at the moment.
To see the plans you can visit
https://publicaccess.rbwm.gov.uk/online-applications/ if you would like to support this application, please do so before the public consultation closes on the 11th July.

School Term Dates
Please see here for term dates:
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. It is noticeable that holiday absences affect children's progress and friendship groups. 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
