 Welcome back children! (March 2021)

Hello children and parents of Year 1!

We are so delighted to be able to open school for all of our Holy Trinity family. It will bring us great joy to see you on Monday 8th March, bright and early! The teachers have already been busy preparing for the 4 weeks of school which will take us up to the Easter holidays. 

 

Although we will be back together again, some things in school will remain slightly different as we all get used to being together again in the classrooms. 

 

There will be a heavy focus on PSHE and Wellbeing. It is so important that we discuss our feelings, the changes we have faced and support the school community as it comes back together. To do this we will be using Place2Be resources over the 4 weeks. These resources are grouped into four themes (self-efficacy, hope, gratitude and connectedness), with each drawing upon some of the factors that underpin wellbeing and positive psychology. Similarly, we will be spending time in class discussing worries, strengths, hopes and dreams. 

 

Over the first week we will be aiming to build up the children's stamina for learning, beginning with team building activities and moving towards full English and maths lessons. We will reintroduce our school values; Love, Trust, Respect, Thanksgiving and Friendship and create some beautiful art and craft responses to each of these. 

 

To recapture the children's interest in learning, we will also be thinking about Awe and Wonder and introducing the children to some famous weird and wonderful places (KS2) and unusual animals (KS1).

 

Getting back to formal full week learning will be difficult for us all after this period of lockdown. But as we always do at Holy Trinity, we will work together and succeed. 

 

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact a member of staff. 

 

Thank you.
