Our Reading sheds

Thanks to the fundraising efforts of the school community, the PTFA were able to purchase reading sheds for our playground. Take a look at these in action...

At Holy Trinity we use Twinkl Phonics resources which follow the Letters & Sounds sequence.

Our reading books in Key Stage 1 follow this structure and we read books from the Oxford Reading Tree and Phonics Bug Reading Schemes which follow the same sequence of sounds.

World Book Day 2023

Thursday 2nd March 

This year we had a whole school focus on the book 'The day the crayons quit' by Drew Daywalt. During the day, the children took part in different activities relating to the book and came to school dressed as different coloured crayons. 


The Day The Crayons Quit (Paperback)

A competition was held to design a new front cover for the book and a winner was chosen from each class to choose a book from the Book Vending machine. It was a really tough decision to make as there were some fantastic designs! Thank you to everyone who took part. 

Take a look at the winning designs below... 

World Cup Book Bingo

Thank you to all of the children that returned their World Cup Bingo Challenges. I hope that you all had fun reading about different countries and cultures. All of the completed sheets were put into a hat and there was one winner from each year group. The children had lots of fun being the first users of the Book Vending Machine. Keep an eye out for more reading challenges in the New Year, for the chance to use the vending machine!

Holy Trinity has a Reading Vending Machine!
