Holy Trinity CofE Primary School (Merton)

Holy Trinity C of E Primary School


This Week:   Monday 29th April

What a great first week back after Easter. We have loved hearing about all the holiday news and looking at lots of pictures of what you all got upto! The children have enjoyed getting into our new topic 'Colours' especially our book of the week and making bread! This week our main focus will be 'blue' and we will be reading 'The Blue Balloon' by Mick Inkpen. The children will be asked to think of where they would like to go and whether they can draw a picture of this land. We will therefore be discussing all things blue whilst focussing on the sea. If you have any other books relating to the colour or the seaside then please bring them in. In phonics we will be learning 'o'; All around the orange. We follow Read Write Inc if you would like to look this up at home. 
In Maths we will be discussing money - what does it look like? Why do we use it? What do the numbers mean? And we will be trying to make some (small) amounts using coins. 
In RE we will be learning about the story of the blind beggar. We will discuss how we treat people and highlight the importance of Jesus and how he helps people. 
Home Thinking:
Thinking of various words beginning with our sound each week will support your child's phonics.. This could be done on the way to school, spotting letters in storybooks or when you are out and about.
You may have noticed that there is a reading book in your child's bag - this is for you to read over the week! Please make sure the book is back in the bag every Thursday so your child can swap it for a new one. 
Just a reminder that class photographs are on Tuesday!
Please wear the colour of the week on Friday's if you have anything! So anything blue that you have you can wear for this week. 
As a school we are collecting used batteries to recycle. There will be a tub in Nursery (by the entrance door) where your children can deposit any. We are hoping to get as many as we can as there is a competition with different schools whereby the winning school will receive prizes. Please find you don't need in the house and bring them in!
Reading books are changed every Thursday so please have them in your child's bag so that they can pick a new one. If you were unable to bring the book in on this day please can you wait until the following week as we often end up losing track of which book is which. Thank you!
Please remind your children to come and talk to us if they hurt themselves - we have had a few children have bumps during school time. They do not always come to tell us/do not get upset and therefore it is difficult to know what happened so encouraging them to come to us will help resolve issues and ensure they are ok.
Please make sure all clothes are labelled and there are spare clothes/plastic bag in their bags for any accidents.
