Today we had a real treat with our Reception Class Assembly. The children retold the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears with fabulous speaking and some lovely songs.
I was really impressed with how confidently the children acted and spoke in front of the whole school and the parents!
Well done Miss Cardy and Mrs Clipston for helping the children to be so amazing!

Over the last few months I have been working with our new website designer Chris Elliott (@Tapiochre) to create our new website. It is now almost finished and we have spent the last couple of weeks rearranging and adding new content and it looks amazing, and I really mean AMAZING! It will be launched on Friday and I am really excited to share it with the world.Obviously I am very biased but I think it is one of the best, most user friendly school sites I’ve ever seen. It fits with our image and our school as a forward thinking, innovative centre of excellence.
Don’t worry you won’t have to wait long to see it- we launch on FRIDAY
I was very disappointed to miss on Wednesday and Thursday this week when the whole school had the opportunity to visit All Saints Church and reflect on the meaning of the Lord’s Prayer. Year 3 have been working closely with Cathy Brazier to unpick the Lord’s Prayer and discuss what it means to them. They helped to devise activities around this theme and visited the church on Wednesday to help organize how it should look. Each class then visited All Saints to take part in each of the activities. Everybody really enjoyed the experience and thought very carefully about the meaning of the Lord’s Prayer. Huge thanks to both Cathy and Mrs Watt for organizing this and giving this great opportunity to the children. We are looking forward to making this an annual event.
Very very pleased to congratulate Miss Dickson and her partner on the arrival of Isabella Grace Davis. She was born at 4:30am on Thursday 13th June weighing 7lb 3. Both mum and baby are doing very well and are at home. I am sure Miss Dickson and Isabella will visit us all in school before the summer holidays.
Sorry for the delay everyone but the blogs are all now back up and running properly again!
As always there are many many amazing things going on at Trinity every day but what have you been enjoying the most over the last couple of weeks? I’d love to know what are the favourite things you have been doing while I’ve been away. Leave a comment and tell me!
Today I have installed another great quote. This time in my office, I think it fits exactly with our values and ethos at Trinity. What do you think?
This has been my strangest term so far at Trinity being away so much. It is very nice to be the Consultant Head and being able to support another school but i do miss my beloved Trinity. I am very very proud of Mrs Freeman, my amazing team and of course the brilliant children and its been wonderful seeing Trinity go from strength to strength when I have been back each week. I am looking forward to being back full time in September as we work towards Outstanding.
There has been lots of great things this term from Year 1′s assembly, our Artists Theme Week, Year R’s farm trip and my favourite part- Year 4′s residential in York. What has been your favourite thing you’ve done this term? Leave me a comment and tell me all about it!
After school today I added a couple of new things around he school. Two inspirational quotes from children’s authors Dr Seuss and Roald Dahl. One is outside my office and one on the library window. I also have a Harry Potter quote for my office which I hope to put up in the holidays.
Today at celebration assembly we were very excited to announce a new addition to our uniform. We are not changing our superb jade green but will be adding new options for our older children. From September children in Key Stage 2 (Years 3 & 4) will have the option of having our new school tie as part of their uniform. Alongside this they will also have the option of a new darker green v- neck sweatshirt or cardigan which we think will look very smart.
As many of you know one of our great strengths is our children’s independence and we have been developing our older children as ‘leaders’ in particular with Year 4 having responsibilities around the school for many different things. One of the reasons we painted the key stages different colours last year was to give our older children a sense of identity so there is a clearer definition between KS1 and KS2. The new additions to the uniform will also help define our older children across the school which I am sure they will be very pleased with and wear with pride.
Next week will be our ARTISTS THEME WEEK. For our final theme week of the year the children will be studying Famous Artists. They will be looking at the History of different styles of art and all about famous artists and their work.
They will be reproducing famous works as well as creating their own amazing artwork in the style of their focus artists. they ill also be using their fantastic research skills to discover all about their artists.
As the children create their amazing artworks we will be posting pictures on our theme week blog
