Dear Parents and Carers,
This is the last newsletter of the year. It seems to have flown by doesn’t it?
For some of our families and staff, this is their last newsletter as they move on to new adventures.
Good Luck and Good Bye
To all our Year 6 pupils. Thank you for a wonderful (and emotional) Leavers’ Service yesterday in church. You are all stars and it was such a blessing to see how much you’re grown and achieved in your time at primary school. We started that year group in Reception with 45 pupils. This has grown over the years and we now have 61 pupils in Y6! Every single one of you has made a difference to our Holy Trinity Family and you will be missed.
We wish you all the luck in the world as you move on to your secondary schools; take a deep breath and believe in yourself!
Thank you to Year 6 parents for the delicious staff lunch you provided – it’s very gratefully received I can tell you!
We’d also like to wish other pupils and families that are moving on a smooth transition into your new schools – wishing you good luck too!
To Miss Prince and Mrs Marriner.
Mrs Marriner has been a part of our staff team for over 18 years. Thank you Mrs Marriner for all you have given to all the hundreds of Holy Trinity children you have supported and worked with over the years. You will most definitely be missed!
Miss Prince joined Holy Trinity team in 2017. Thank you Miss Prince for making such a difference to the lives of the children you have taught in your time here. We are going to miss you greatly too.
EXTREME HOT WEATHER
And it’s getting hotter….. please make sure your child has a water bottle and a sun hat in school. We can re-fill bottles as needed. Please apply sun cream before school.
We will close at 1pm on both Monday and Tuesday next week so please make plans for your child to be picked up then. Pre School will also close at 1pm and there will be no After School Club on either day.
We won’t be delivering PE sessions next week in an effort to reduce physical activity, however, your child can choose to wear their PE kit or summer uniform – whichever they feel cooler in!
If anyone is able to donate any fans for us to try to keep the classrooms as cool as possible, please let the office know. Thank you in advance.
Staffing in September
You will have received a letter this week detailing class teachers for September but in case you missed it:
Mrs O’Brien (Friday)
Mrs Sedour (Monday to Wednesday)
Miss Wallbanks (Thursday & Friday)
Mrs Rhodes (Monday to Thursday morning)
Mrs Ahmed (Thursday afternoon & Friday)
Mrs Fargher (Thursday)
Your children will be spending time on Monday morning with their new class teacher in their new classroom. Please check the class pages on our website for information about curriculum topics, pencil cases, PE days etc for the new term in September.
Your child will be bringing home their end of year report today. We hope you find them useful.
KS2 Adventure Playground
The work commenced yesterday and will be completed after we break up next week. I know the children are all very excited for it to be ready for them to enjoy in September. Once again, thank you to all those who have donated and raised PTA funds to make this possible.
So, all that remains is for me to wish you all a very relaxing, safe and happy summer holiday.
We look forward to welcoming you all back to school on Monday 5th September in winter uniform.

Top Tips for Transition!
Whether moving up a year or to a new school or taking the big step to secondary school, you may find some of the transition tips on the attachment below quite useful.
London Marathon - British Heart Foundation
As some of you will know and remember, Mrs Poulter's beloved husband Graham passed away very suddenly and unexpectedly in May last year. Mrs Poulter's son Tommy will be honouring his Dad's memory by running the London Marathon in October this year, raising money for the British Heart Foundation in the process. If you're able to contribute, please click here for Tommy's Just Giving Page. Many thanks indeed.
Reception Class Activities
Despite the heat Reception Class have had a busy week! On Monday we visited the church as part of our RE topic on Special Places.
On Tuesday Mrs Free brought her granddaughters into school. The children were entranced by the babies and asked lots of questions.
Year 5 - France
Year 5 have been studying France this week. They have learned some basic French conversation and made crepes, which were very tasty!
I'm so proud of Year 5 for once again being such Ravenous Readers this year! Thank you to parents for encouraging your children to read. Here are this week's Ravenous Readers. Emily has been very busy!
We have finalised the Summer Fair figures and are delighted to announce the final figure raised is £6,061!!! Again, a big thank you to reps, helpers, teachers and parents for helping at and attending the Fair.
We will shortly be updating Classlist to change your child’s class to their new year. Please note the current Year 6 will be removed to comply with data protection requirements.
Reception and Year 6 Tea Towel’s have arrived! These will be sent home with your child before the end of term.
Don't forget the pre-loved Uniform Sale at 3pm today - £2 per item. Get yourself a stash of spares and sizes for the future - all for a song!
Krispy Kremes will be on sale too.
Wishing you all a fantastic summer holiday.
Magpies Clubs for the Autumn term will be bookable from Monday. Please note that Lego Club will not be available to Reception Class for the first term as a minimum so the flyer below will be amended but tells you what's going on in he meantime.
The School Clubs web page will be updated in the summer holidays. Mrs Dutton's Art Club will be moving to a Wednesday in September and Mrs O'Brien will be running a new Homework Club for KS2 on Thursdays.
Please do not book holidays or family days during term time. Missing even one or two days of school can be detrimental to your child's learning as key information is missed. Friendships are also affected. 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. Please note that changes are afoot which may require the issuing of fixed penalty notices for holiday taken during school term time.
