This week we are thinking about the birds! Have a go at making a bird feeder or a bird cake for our feathered friends!
Let us know what birds you attract to your garden by using the bird finder...
This week is Children's Mental Health Week. Click the link below for more information.
The topic this year is 'Express Yourself' where children are encouraged to express themselves in whatever they want!
Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. This could be through art, music, writing and poetry, dance and drama, photography and film, and doing activities that make you feel good.
It’s important to remember that being able to express yourself is not about being the best at something or putting on a performance for others. It is about finding a way to show who you are, and how you see the world, that can help you feel good about yourself.
If you want to, you can send us your activities that make you feel good!
A huge well done to each and every one of you for your efforts and enthusiasm last week! It has been a tricky time for us all to be learning new things together, but I can safely say that you have all embraced the challenge and even taught us a thing or two!
We are all impressed with the standard of work that is being produced both in class and at home and we will be displaying examples of this work on a weekly basis, so keep looking on here...

Friday 5th February
A super letter to highlight the issue of plastic pollution - well done Jaydn!
Fabulous examples of our Holy Trinity Hello initiative!
We have asked the children to produce colourful hands and put them in their windows. We have challenged them to look out for these hands when they are doing their daily walks.
Spring Term 1 Year 6 Curriculum Map
We have welcomed most children back to Year 6 now, however, if your child is self-isolating at home, please ask them to log on to Google Classroom to find the work for that day.
As always, if you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
For each session, log in at classroom.google.com
The username will be in this format:
14(firstname)(initial of surname)@stacksteads.lancs.sch.uk
for example if your child is named John Smith, the username will be email@example.com
The password will be: holytrinity6 (In some cases holytrinity6a)
The children have logged on before and are familiar with navigating the classrooms - they have a sticker in the front of their reading records.
Information about Year 6
Please keep updated with the latest news about the school via the school app. Guidelines can change regarding education at the moment and any important notices are sent via the school jotter.
Children are to arrive at school for 8.45 am at the entrance to Key Stage 1 and line up along the wall.
Any adults that arrive with them are reminded to socially distance.
There is a new timetable set for each year group bubble. This will be given to the children. It keeps each year group separated during break and lunch times.
If your child needs to bring in a mobile phone, a plastic zip bag will be provided for it to be stored in during the school day and given back at the end of each day.
School bags are allowed in with your child. However, there will not be a need to send in any pencil case/toys etc. The only things they should have are homework books, reading records, drinks bottles and lunch boxes where necessary.
Our P.E. session is on Friday and children are asked to come in their PE kits. They can arrive in school shoes and change into their pumps during the day. It is advisable to send them in with their school jumpers over their PE t-shirts and track suit bottoms as we are coming into the colder months.
School finishes at 3.20 pm and the children will leave via the entrance to the car park.
Alongside a timetable of catch up lessons that include numeracy, GPS, reading and writing we will be looking at the following:
We will be looking at persuasive texts and designing an advert for a hotel.
We will be using key skills to answer questions about a text. We will be focusing on skimming and scanning and vocabulary.
We will be looking at composition and playing an instrument using improvisation.
The children will be using our new online education platform - Google Classroom and be shown some of the features they will be using in the curriculum in the coming year.
Our PE sessions will begin on w/c 7th September.
Children are asked to read for 20 minutes every day.
Children will be given a piece of numeracy that links with their learning that week alongside spellings every Friday.
This will be due in the following Friday. It is important to encourage your child to complete their homework over the weekend as any difficulties can be addressed during the week.
