Spring 2023

Happy New Year



Welcome back to the new Spring term which starts on Wednesday January 4th.


Bristol planning is going well. Please remember to keep up with your payments. If your circumstances change, please contact the school office who will put you in touch with our Finance Dept. If you have not paid the deposit by Parent Pay, the deadline has passed, so you will now need to pay this by cash (preferred) or cheque at the school office. Parent Pay payments can then be resumed.


The year group is divided into 3 classes:

6D taught by Mr Land and is supported by Mrs Donald;

6L taught by Mr Lane and is supported by Mrs Hoskins (Monday Tuesday) & Mrs Davies (Wed, Thurs, Friday)

6SR taught by Miss Booton (Mon to Wed)  &  Mrs Sampson (Wed to Fri) and supported by Mrs Cowell

The year group will also be supported by Miss Hammond and Mrs Higgins.



Please encourage your child to read five times independently at home for homework. We ask for your support in this by signing to validate. It would be fantastic if you could, on occasion, discuss what they are reading.



In the first half of this term, we will be studying ‘Where the River Runs Gold’ by Sita Brahmachari. This is a dystopian, but ultimately hopeful novel due to the love of nature and of humanity that shines through. The themes of child exploitation, inequality and climate crisis are explored in this book.  We shall continue to focus on developing sentence structure, and exploring writing in different genre styles. After half-term, we shall explore non-fiction writing with a newspaper article.



The children will be working hard towards the SATs exams which take place from Tuesday 9th May- Friday 12th May. Please can you provide whatever help you can with their revision homework.



This term we will be looking at the topic ‘Light’, followed by ‘Classification’.


Curriculum topics this term

We will be studying ‘Epidemics Through The Ages’ with a special focus on the Great Plague in our History topic. In Geography, we shall be exploring ‘Fair Trade’. In RE will be exploring the theme, Creation and Science: conflict or complimentary? We will be emailing you the Knowledge Organisers linked to these subjects where you can share what they will be learning and have a go at the retrieval quiz!


P.E. and Swimming

P.E kits can be worn to school on PE days. Kit consists of black shorts, white t-shirt (with or without the school logo) and trainers.


We will be continuing with outdoor PE for all classes, and this will take place on Thursday. Indoor PE will take place on a Tuesday afternoon for those children who are not swimming. Your child will need to wear their PE kit to school on those days unless they are swimming, in which case they will bring their swimming kit in and wear school uniform as usual.


We are very fortunate to have our own pool here at Trinity, and we feel that it is very important that children take advantage of this resource. Therefore, children must remember to bring their swimming kits to every session. If, for any reason, your child is unable to take part in P.E. or swimming, a signed letter must be provided.

6L will be swimming for the first half term. Please make sure they have their swimming kit in every Tuesday.  Their lessons will begin on Tuesday 10th January. 6D will swim in the second half-term.


Your child is to wear PE kit to and from school on PE days.



We appreciate that as the children grow older, they gain more independence. Children who wish to walk or cycle home on their own must have a completed ‘Walking Home Alone’ form which is available from your class teacher.



Correct school uniform must be worn at all times, and all garments must be labelled with your child's name.
