Holy Trinity CofE Primary School (Merton)

Holy Trinity C of E Primary School


This Week:   Monday 17th June
Well done Nursery for another fantastic week! The children have really enjoyed learning about China, particularly creating their own Great Walls. Lots of children could remember which continent China is in and some facts and new traditions which is fantastic! This half term we are learning about animals and this week we are focussing on 'birds'. We will be reading the story 'The Very Worried Sparrow' by Meryl Doney. If you have any books on birds then please feel free to bring them in. We will be discussing the different types of birds and the children will be creating various bird crafts as well as a bird feeder for home! In phonics we will be learning the sound 'f'; Down the stem and draw the leaves. We follow Read Write Inc if you would like to look this up at home. 
In Maths we will working on ordering in size as well as using mathematical language to describe the differences. We will focus on height - how tall are we? How could we describe someone if they are smaller?
In RE we be learning the patron saint for birds and animals, St Francis. How important is it to look after our world? How can we look after animals? 
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 Grace! Happy 4th Birthday to Henry and Jerome! Happy 4th Birthday Harry!
If you could bring in any twigs, leaves, pinecones etc to help create a large discovery nest that would be wonderful! Also any toilet rolls would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Sports day is on Tuesday at 10:45 (Ladybirds, AM) and 2:45 (Butterflies, PM). Please arrive at least a few minutes before as we planning on starting promptly. 
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.
