Spring 2 2024

Easter Bonnets


Author Visit

Classes 5 and 6 were really excited to welcome the author and illustrator Mike Brownlow to Holy Trinity today.  He spoke to each class about his books and demonstrated how to draw some of his well-known characters which all the children had a go at copying.  We also enjoyed listening to him read two of his stories.

Spirituality Day

The theme of our spirituality day was prayer.  The children found out a lot of about different types of prayer during the day and after a walk outside to look at all the signs of nature, shared 'thank you' prayers.  Both classes even learnt to sign the Lord's Prayer in Makaton.

The children found out about James Cook and his voyage to Australia. They enjoyed created their own Aboriginal-inspired dot paintings.

World Explorers Topic

Classes 5 and 6 have been busy making their own globes out of paper-mache.

Autumn 2023

Christmas Nativity - Born in a Barn

We hope you enjoy these pictures from our production of Born in a Barn.  We had a great time performing.

Caterpillars and Butterflies!

We were excited that five caterpillars came to live in each class.  They had their own special pot to live in and we watched them grow bigger and turn into chrysalides.  We moved them into the chrysalis station inside the butterfly net and after two weeks they turned into butterflies.  It was really exciting to watch them fly away – although they were in a bit of a hurry and flew away before we could photograph them!


Autumn Second Half Term 2021

The children have been thinking about the seasons especially Autumn and  have been using fallen leaves to make leaf people. The children had lots of fun making these pictures.

They have also been looking at the festival of Diwali and how this celebrated. The children made their own Rangoli patterns and coloured henna designs.

We have also been counting down to Christmas and completing lots of activities linked to this. The children have been dressing up in their role play corners - Santa's workshop and The Nativity.

Autumn First Half Term 2021

The children have been settling into school and getting to know the rountines of the school day. They have been busy making friends and getting to know each other by sharing their All About Me books. 

The children have been completing lots of practical activities and they have also been learning different letter sounds to begin their reading journey.
