Holy Trinity CofE Primary School (Merton)

Holy Trinity C of E Primary School


This Week:   Monday 25th February 

Have a great half term holiday!
What a fantastic half term. The children all settled back really quickly and have thoroughly enjoyed our Nursery rhyme topic. They all loved having a teddy tea party with their own teddies and the sandwiches seemed to go down a treat! Our new topic after half term is 'Life Cycles'. Our first week is the life cycle of a caterpillar. We will be reading 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' by Eric Carle. We will be talking about the different stages of a caterpillar's life. We will also discuss what healthy foods are and what we should be eating. This week we will also be recapping our previous phonics sounds 'm,a,s,d and t'. We follow the Read, Write Inc scheme of work if you would like to have a look. 
In Maths we will look at sequences and patterns with colours and shapes.
We will also be discussing the changes in the weather-  what season have we been in? How is the weather changing? What season are we coming into? How does this affect us?
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. 
Happy 4th Birthday Chloe! (28th Feb)
We have a week off! We start back at school on the 25th February at regular times. Please bring back your holiday books during this first week so they children can share what they have been upto!
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.
