Dear Parents and Carers
What a fabulous way to start a Friday. The excitement from the children as they came into school dressed up and dressed down was infectious and brought a smile to everyone. Our Halloween Dance-Athon is now in full fling. If you would like to help raise funds for our school please go to the gofund page that has been set up – see link below – or scan the QR code on the posters at the gates. Many thanks to our PTSA for organising this. All money raised will go towards resources for active learning in literacy and numeracy to benefit all our learners.
After break will be Halloween Star Time (all of the children have chosen a Halloween activity to take part in). We are hoping the weather clears up a bit as some of the chosen activities are outdoors!
We are so lucky to have such great outdoor learning spaces but they do require maintenance and are needing a bit of a tidy up before Winter sets in. To help with this we are planning a community tidy on Sun Nov 7th. Jobs include sweeping leaves, cleaning the chicken house in readiness for our new additions, painting railings, weeding, trimming hedges, moving soil. Given we are still operating under some restrictions there will be no access to the school building and families will be designated an area / task to work on. If you are able to help out at any point between 10.00am to 1.00pm on Sun Nov 7th we would be delighted to see you. To help with organisation please sign up below. Coffee and pastries will be provided:
Those of you who are familiar with the programme I am sure will share my concerns that we are seeing several children playing a version of Squid Games in our school playground. The age rating for the Netflix series is for mature audiences which means may be unsuitable for children under the age of 17. It is definitely unsuitable for children of primary age. Please can you discourage your child from watching the programme and remind them that it is not appropriate for any version to be played in school. Thank you.
Whilst our first week back has gone really well and overall, our learners are settled and ready to learn, I would like to say a continued thanks to the Trinity staff team for their perseverance and flexibility. This week has seen seven staff members absent. We are all so looking forward to the day when everyone is back in school.
I hope you have an enjoyable weekend and do please remember to put your clocks back on Saturday night. An extra hour in bed is hopefully a bonus!
