We will be celebrating this over two weeks with the following events:

Book fair

Dates for 2020 -the book fair will arrive on 26th February 2020 when pupils can have the opportunity for a browse. The fair opens on Thursday 27th until Tuesday 3rd March – 3.30pm until 4pm.

Fast selling books can be ordered and they will be delivered to the school. These must be paid for when placing the order.

Theatre Visits

We always try to provide our children with a wide range of opportunities to experience stories. This year there are a number of opportunities including theatre workshops visiting the  school, African story-telling workshops, and Year 5 and 6 visit the theatre.

Phonics.

Children’s learning of phonics is an important part of their learning to read. We use Letters and Sounds. 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.
