Parents Evening will be face to face with the class teacher this time and the meetings will take place in your child’s classroom. We would be grateful if you could arrive only 5 minutes prior to your time as there is very little waiting room. Seats will be put outside each classroom. 6N and Reception parents will be able to wait in the Reception classroom. Your appointment time will be 10 minutes and a stop-watch to time the appointment will be used to ensure appointments do not overrun. We would prefer you to wear a mask when indoors waiting and during your appointment.
Slots are currently being prepared for each class and some booking emails have gone out already. Please check your junk folder if you don't receive a booking email over the next couple of days. If you need any help booking your appointment, please do call the school office.
This year we come together to celebrate Harvest Festival at Holy Trinity Church at 9:30am on Tuesday 12th October (YR, 2, 4, 6N) and Thursday 14th October (Y1, 3, 5, 6W). We would be grateful if all adults would wear a mask on this occasion whilst in church. We thank you for your cooperation.
Below is a list of items needed. These need to be long life goods rather than perishables so that they can be stored and distributed as needed.
Have a wonderful weekend and we’ll see you on Monday!

Well done to all of our Stars this week.

House of the Week
The House with the most house points this week is Air! Well done Air!
Portrait photos were sent home in book bags this week. These can be ordered online or via school if sent in to the school office by Tuesday 19th October at the very latest.
School Council Meeting
School councillors had their first meeting at the church this week. It was wonderful to hear all of their thoughtful and creative ideas. Reverend Jon helped them to create a new School Council Prayer. It's going to be a great year!
Year 1 Trip to Windsor Castle
Class 1 visited Windsor Castle on Monday and had a wonderful time learning about all the different roles in the castle in Queen Victoria’s reign. Children dressed up as maids, chefs and Felix (the butler) who helped Queen Victoria with everything! A dubbing ceremony was held by Queen Mrs Barnes and they arose as Sir or Lady. Having read the story, ‘The Queen’s Knickers’, we also hand delivered our range of Platinum Jubilee Knickers for the Queen to decide which she should wear for this very important occasion next year. Windsor Castle were delighted with the range and said this was a first for them to receive such a gift. The castle organised a washing line to display the pants. We hope the Queen enjoyed our designs.
Years 4 and 5 - Trip to Ufton Court
Year 4 learned all about the Romans. We went back in time and learnt some useful Roman skills such as weaving, carding and spinning and using a flint and steel. We looked at Roman artefacts and had to guess which teacher was telling the truth! We then learnt some very tricky Military manoeuvres such as Shield Wall, the Orb and the fabulous Testudo formation. What a great day!
Year 5 re-enacted court drama, terrible tales and faced each other as the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings in battle. Fun was had by all!
Year 5 Ravenous Readers
Here are this week's Ravenous Readers! Charan read Beetle Boy and Hristiana read Carrie's War.
In 6W we have been challenging our glockenspiel skills by learning how to play 'It's a long way to Tipperary' as part of our WW1 topic.
School Christmas Cards
Templates for the school Christmas Cards will come home in book bags today. Cards will not be designed in school this year so if you would like your child to design a Christmas Card, please do this at home and return to school with your order form and payment in cash or cheque payable to RBWM by the morning of Friday 15th October at the very latest. These will be collected the same day so unfortunately late returns cannot be processed.
Halloween Fancy Dress Costume Sale - Friday 15th October
Got a box full of costumes your kids never play with?
Got a witch / wizard cape that is "for babies!" and never going to be worn again?
Got no idea what your kids are going to wear for Halloween Mufti day on the 22 Oct?
FEAR NOT!! We have the answer...
Halloween / Fancy Dress Costume Sale in the playground after school on Friday 15th October.
Costumes will be £2 and proceeds will go to the PTA (and the world will thank you for saving some polyester from landfill!).
We need you to...
- Dig out all those old costumes that are too small / never played with / not "trendy" anymore
- Give them a wash and hand them in to the school office by the end of the day Wednesday 13th October
- Bring your pennies to pick up on Friday 15th (also - it's Bake Sale day - so double hurrah!)

Year 6W will be running their cake stall next Friday. Please remember NO nuts and all cakes sold need to show a list of ingredients.
There will also be a Pre-Loved Uniform sale and Halloween Fancy Dress Costume sale. If you have any old Halloween costumes please give them a wash and hand them into the school office by Wednesday 13 October. All items will be £2.

Pumpkin Carving competition
We will be running our Pumpkin Carving Competition again this year.

Disappointingly only 1 parent has volunteered to help with the gathering of auction prizes. We have therefore made the decision not to go ahead with the auction this Christmas.

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. These will show up as persistent absence which is checked by Ofsted when they visit and monitored 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
