We have had a very busy start to the school year with all children and staff getting back into the routines of school after the summer break. Our Early Years children have started school so positively and are loving lots of things about their school day. They have started learning their sounds and are beginning to put them together to read and write words which is very exciting! Our Early Years children are not the only new people starting at Trinity this year as we have welcomed Richard Reid as our new Deputy Headteacher, Anita Crawley as our new SENDCo and Anna Morris as a new class teacher. I am pleased to be able to report that both children and staff are settling in very well!
This week all the children from year 1 to Year 4 have been visiting the Bath Children’s Literature Festival. Each year group has been to a different event but they have all loved it and come back to school really inspired to do their own writing. We are very lucky that the TSA (Parent Association) has made a substantial contribution towards the cost of the coach travel meaning we have been able to reduce the amount we have had to ask parents to contribute to the costs.
Last week some of our Year 4 children ran a very successful coffee morning for Macmillan Cancer Care, with the help of the TSA. Over £250 was raised for this very worthwhile cause and the hall was very busy with people making the most of the chance to sit and eat cake at 9am! It was really lovely to be able to welcome parents and grandparents into school to take some time to chat rather than rushing off after the school run.
Next week we are inviting parents to spend some time with their children in class during ‘Stay and Play’ sessions running for children from year 1 to year 4 throughout the week. Again, it is great to welcome parents in to give them a flavour of the kinds of things the children get up to during the day.
