Dressing Up Day

On Friday 2nd March 2018 the children (and staff) can come to school dressed as animals. Suggested donations of £1 are to be given to the class teacher during morning registration.

Theatre visit

The children will be watching Jungle Bungle by The West End in Schools Theatre Group. The show promotes a ‘love of books’ and will feature the following books:

How to Heal a Broken Wing by Bob Graham

Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak

Danny the Champion of the World by Roald Dahl

The Huge Bag of Worries by Virginia Ironside. Illustrations by Frank Rogers.

If children are familiar with these books they will recognise them in the show. Also, the children can learn the songs prior to the performance so that they can join in on the day. The lyrics can be found at:

Origami Animals

The Year 4 children will be making and selling origami animals on Friday 2nd March. The animals will cost 50p each and the proceeds will be given to The Friends of Holy Trinity PTA.

 

Get Caught Reading

Remember to bring in photos of you reading in various/adventurous/unusual places to add to our growing ‘Get Caught Reading’ display.

Phonics.

Children’s learning of phonics is an important part of their learning to read. Phonic support from home is really useful, and to assist you, we have added the link to the proper pronunciation of the sounds.

This provides all the sounds as they are taught in school so that we are all working together effectively.

 

 

Curriculum Overviews.

The Holy Trinity English curriculum follows the Herts for Learning overviews ensuring full coverage of the curriculum. The planning provides a wide variety of texts which help to capture the interest and imaginations of pupils.
