Trinity News : April 23rd 2021

Dear Parents and Carers

It’s the summer term, everyone is back in school (very different to last year at this time) and the sun is shining.  I really do feel that life is moving in the right direction and hope that the term ahead proves to be successful for us all.   We are still currently working within the same COVID restrictions as we were last term although I am hopeful that the next few weeks might see the start of us returning to being able to fully learn as Trinity Together.  I’m keeping everything crossed!

Please see below for some Trinity news :

Trinity’s Got Talent

Application forms will be available from Mon 26th April and must be returned by Fri 30th April.  Our house captains have explained that anyone taking part must provide their own props and music if required.  Auditions will take place from Mon May 10th with the final being ‘aired’ on Wed June 16th.  We are still in discussion with the organisers (our house captains) as to the format of this!

Rainbow school

Please take a moment to chat to your child about Trinity being a rainbow school.  We have introduced this idea to both support our learners in understanding about diversity and to take action if they hear or see any behaviours that are unkind or disrespectful. 

We all need to ‘see with our hearts, not our eyes.’

What a Wonderful World

This term our whole school will be using the lyrics from the song ‘What a Wonderful World’ to lead aspects of learning.   Classes will be looking at the four elements, at living things, climate and wildlife amongst other things. 

Reporting to parents and carers on leaners’ progress

By the end of this term all parents and carers will have received a second profile, either paper copy or through OneNote, and had a second opportunity to chat with their child’s class teacher  As always, if you have concerns please do not hesitate to get in touch via   

Class organisation for Aug 2021

We are in the process of rearranging classes for August.  The decision has been made to do this for all stages.  Please find attached a pdf regarding class organisation.  This will also be made available on our school website.   A range of criteria will be used with friendships being a key element.  I hope that you have trust in the school that we know our learners and that we want to get this right for everyone.  

A meeting on TEAMS for current P5 and P6 parents and carers will take place on Tues April 27th at 6.30pm.   Please look out for an invite.  The reason a meeting is being held is to explain how we will manage moving from 6 to 5 classes.

Sports day, Summer picnic, End of Year celebration etc

Unfortunately, as restrictions currently stand, these events will not be able to happen as they did in summer term 2019.  We are however looking at what we can do to allow us to stay within the guidance whilst still having fun.  More information will follow.
