Newsletter 38 - 10th July 2020

Dear Parents and Carers,
It has been really wonderful this week to welcome Year 3 back for their 2 day visits. We know the children have really enjoyed being with their friends and teacher – their smiles said it all!
Next week, we look forward to welcoming Year 2 and Year 4 back for their visits. We’re all looking forward to seeing you again. All you need to bring with you is a water bottle and a plastic bag to take home your books.
We have said goodbye to Year 6 this week! It is always a bitter sweet moment for them and us. This year was made more so as this cohort missed having their Leavers’ Service, residential trip, dramatic production and transition days to their new schools. Mrs Neale has been working hard to make sure they leave with lasting memories of their time at Holy Trinity. Good luck to all our Year 6 children, enjoy your new schools and come back to see us when you can!
Last week, the government published guidance on re-opening schools fully in September. We will be sharing with you how we will be doing that in a letter next week.
If you are looking for summer camps and activities over the summer holidays, the following are now available to book:
·        Magpies in the Community will be running a summer camp here at Holy Trinity School w/c 27th July and w/c                 3rd August.  Click here for more information.

We hope you enjoy the weekend and continue to stay safe.
 Mrs Griffith and Mrs O’Brien

Key Worker Group

This week has been all about the body – we have made models of the digestive system using playdoh and even made a model of blood using water for plasma, cheerios for red blood cells, mini marshmallows for white blood cells and pop corn kernels for platelets – what could you find at home to use?!!

Our Key Worker group also really enjoyed their challenge this week to create the tallest tower they possibly could using cardboard and straws.


Some of you have been feeling particularly poetic this week.  Here is a poem from Sophie C in Year 5:

Mia in Class 4W has written a poem about coming back to school next week:


We are going back to school 

We are going back to school we are going to have fun

My teacher is the best at keeping us happy

Whilst we have fun at school

Just have fun whilst we can

We are going back to school we might forget a rule or two

Just think we are going back to school to have fun learning

We are going to have air hugs when we come in and air hugs as we leave

 We are going to have cuddles when it is over

Then think of what an amazing class we are

I cannot wait to go back to school

The Water Cycle

Year 4 have been doing lots of work on the Water Cycle this term including conducting experiments on the states of water which also demonstrates the processes of melting, evaporation and condensation.  Jenson has also sent us a photo of how water can be used for recreational purposes :-)

Do You Have Any Spare PE Kit?

As we come to the end of another year, if you find you have PE kit that you will no longer use, we would be very happy to take it off your hands.  We like to keep a good supply for children to borrow in case they don't have their PE kit in school. If you have borrowed kit in the past we'd be very grateful to have this back too.  We can also find a home for any spare washed trainers. Please leave any PE related items you'd like to donate just inside the door of school reception.  Many thanks.
