Dear Parents and Carers
At last the sun has come out and will hopefully stay out for our half term break. Have a lovely week but do remember that we have an inset day on Monday 7th June so look forward to seeing all of your children back in school on Tuesday 8th June.
Holy Trinity has been awarded the prestigious Gilt Primary Science Quality Mark. Schools that achieve PSQM demonstrate commitment and expertise in science leadership, teaching and learning. The feedback says, ‘There is clearly a strong, ongoing commitment from all staff at Holy Trinity to provide the best possible science learning experience for all pupils, driven by dedicated and enthusiastic subject leadership. The impact on both pupils and staff is substantial and the subject leaders should be immensely proud of what they have achieved in very challenging circumstances’. A huge thank you to Mrs Lambert, our science lead for working tirelessly towards this and for collating the evidence to support our submission. The feedback also said,’ A truly glowing example of Gilt PSQM submission. Thank you for all your hard work and many congratulations on everything you have achieved. Magnificent!’
As part of the School Street initiative, we were able to welcome Dr Bike into our grounds today who kindly looked at many bikes during his time with us to ensure they were safe and roadworthy. Richmond Council are really keen to get your feedback on the School Street – please follow the link to take part in the survey. https://sustrans.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/richmond-school-streets-perception-survey
Royal Academy Exhibit
In lockdown 1, Izzy in Owl class had a piece of art submitted to the Royal Academy Exhibition for Young People. Entrants had been asked to look at David Hockney’s work for inspiration. Izzy chose to paint her Granny’s garden and capture the multiple viewpoints Hockney uses when looking at landscape. Izzy’s artwork is now on display in the Royal Academy Online Show. Well done Izzy!
