Dear Parents, Friends and Children,
Thank you for your wonderful support of WORLD BOOK WEEK, and our evening of storytelling on World Book Day. It was wonderful to see so many families in school – we were overwhelmed by the incredible response.
I hope that your children are seeing the benefit of the new ‘free reading’ books around the school. Having talked to our children about the new books I have seen a renewed enthusiasm in reading. I think it’s worth mentioning that it’s important to value the reading of comics, magazines etc. as well as books, especially for reluctant readers. We are looking at increasing the range of our reading materials, so if you have any old comics at home that you would like to clear out please feel free to drop them into school – we will either use them or, if they are unsuitable for school, recycle them on your behalf.
On April 7th and 8th we will be raising funds for two Cancer support charities, Walk the Walk and Breakthrough. The Musical Eggstravaganza will feature performances by our school choir; we hope you will be able to join us. Entry is free but there will be a collection at the end of the performance.
Congratulations this week go to Alfie Adams – Alfie finished 15th in the Essex County Cross country Championships. Alfie is the first pupil from Holy Trinity to ever qualify for the final! Well done Alfie!
Take care, thanks for your on-going help and support.
Jon Smith (Headteacher)
