Newsletter 7 - 15th October 2021

Dear Parents,

It was wonderful to be able to celebrate Harvest Festival as a community this year.  The children performed brilliantly, and the singing was just beautiful. Your donations to the Ascot Day Centre and the Bracknell foodbank will certainly be well received.  Thank you for your generosity.


Parents Evening
The Class teachers are looking forward to seeing you next week.  If you haven’t received an email to make an appointment, please contact the office who will be able to assist.  Some hotmail accounts in particular haven't received booking invites this time. 

We would be grateful if you could arrive only 5 minutes prior to your time as there is very little waiting room.  We would prefer if masks could be worn to the appointment. 


‘Squid Game’

You may be aware of a new Netflix TV series called ‘Squid Game’. It is a South Korean thriller which features some scenes of fairly brutal violence and is rated 15 by the British Board of Film Classification. It follows a group of adults who compete to win innocent-looking playground games, but who are killed if they do not succeed at the tasks. In addition to the Netflix Series there is a Roblox version of the Squid Game and we understand that clips may pop up from the TV series whilst children are using Roblox. It is also popping up frequently on TikTok.


We would like to make you aware of this in case your child uses Roblox, TikTok and/or has asked to play/watch Squid Game. Please note the minimum age for TikTok is 13 years of age.


In school we will be discussing the importance of online safety and speaking to any children who we feel may be playing games associated to the above.

Have a lovely weekend,


Mrs Barnes


Parent Governor Election

Further to the election last week, we are delighted to announce that our new Parent Governor will be Jonathan Sharland.  Thank you to everyone who showed an interest in the role.  We are very grateful to our Governors for the huge amount of time and skill they dedicate towards supporting our school.  

Portrait Photos

Just a quick reminder that if you would like to order portrait photos via school, these will need to be returned by Tuesday 19th October.


Stars of the Week for w/e – 15th October 2021

Well done to all of our Stars this week.

Class 1 – Kara-Rae for your determination and fantastic effort in your phonics work this week.

Class 2 – Millie for overcoming her stage fright at Harvest Festival.  The whole of class 2 for their impeccable behaviour at Hampton Court.

Class 3 – Cohen for his hard work and positive attitude towards his reading this week. 

Class 4 – Edie for some super vocabulary and language choices and for always having a go.

Class 5 – Kate for showing great determination and skill during the inter-house football competition.  

Class 6N – Zach for making such a fantastic effort with his independent learning.  His research about the HMS Dreadnought was evident and the detail of his design and build meant she even sailed when launched!

Year 6W – The whole class for the independence and confidence you showed during our Harvest Service.

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

Fantastic Football!

On Thursday afternoon class 5 took part in an inter-house football competition. Here are the results:

Pretty Muddy!

We are very proud of Darcy and Alfie who took part in the Pretty Muddy Race For Life on Saturday, running 5K and raising hundreds of pounds for Cancer Research.  

Year 5 Ravenous Readers

We have lots of Ravenous Readers this week.  Hristiana has read Beetle Boy.  James has completed the class reading list already which is amazing!  He highly recommends 'Dragon Rider' by Cornelia Funke. 1`

Year 6 WW1 Topic

In year 6, as part of our WW1 topic, we found out more about trench life and created our own informative topic pages. We used Forest School to imagine what life would have really been like in there. 

Consultation about the nursery class at South Ascot Village Primary School

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.

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).
