Message from the Governors
As a Governing Board we know how important it is to ensure that the vision of the school is relevant and gives clear expectations and aspirations for the whole school community.
Children, Staff, Parents and Carers were all consulted via the online survey in the summer term. We were delighted to receive so many positive comments and useful feedback that helped us shape our vision and priorities so we can continue to progress learning and wellbeing for all our pupils and staff in the future.
On behalf of the Governing Board I would like to take this opportunity to share with you our vision.
The children and staff have been working in school to formulate ways to achieve this vision, and the Governing Board would also love to hear from you. We will have a stand by the hall at parents evening on Tuesday 22nd and Thursday 24th so please do come and speak to us.
We appreciate that time can be short so if you would prefer, there will be a box in reception with Mrs Lawson next week and on the stand at parents evening for any comments and suggestions you would like to make.
Thank you once again for your continued support.
Chair of Governors
Year 5 Learn About Electricity...
In Year 5 this week we used energy balls to find out if an object was an electrical insulator or conductor. First of all we went outside, made a circle and held hands. When we all held hands and touched the two metal parts, the energy balls glowed and made a noise like an alien. Then we went back inside and got into groups. We had to find different objects from around the classroom and test whether they were insulators or conductors. We were surprised to find out that water and our own bodies would make the energy balls light up so now we know these are conductors! We had to be good scientists and sometimes retest if we got any usual results in our experiment. It was great learning today because it was fun, exciting and we got to investigate it for ourselves.

Charters Football Tournament
On Tuesday the Year 5 and 6 football team went to Charters for a football tournament with other local schools. It was great fun! The B team won two of their games, with goals scored by Grace and Freddie R in Year 5. They faced some tough opponents but kept playing well as a team! The A team came 2nd in the tournament, losing just one game, drawing another and winning the other 3! Goals scored were Monty (Y5), Freddie (Y6), Freddie F (Y5) and Micah (Y5). It was great fun playing other teams and other teams who we knew and battling out against them was great! Everyone represented Holy Trinity fantastically! Well done team!
