News Flash!

We will be setting up Tapestry very soon and this will be filled with lots of photographs of our learning and any messages home – so please keep checking.

P.E is on a Tuesday. We will be using the hall for P.E. this half term but your child will need plimsolls to wear in the hall. Please make sure long hair is tied up and earrings are removed on P.E. days.

Please look out on Parentmail for some upcoming Stay and Play dates for the Autumn Term.

Speech Link Parent portal 

We have been fortunate enough to be granted access for parents to make use of the Speech Link Parent Portal information site until the end of term. The aim is to help promote speech and associated communication skills such as listening so children make progress in all areas of their life.

To access the portal click on https://speechandlanguage.info/parents


Many thanks for your continued  support.

Parent Helpers Wanted!

At present, Parent Helpers will not be able to come into school.  However, when this changes we will let you know, as in the past …. 

Parent Helpers Welcome! We welcome parents into school, to help our children to improve their reading skills.  If you are able to spare a morning or an afternoon, on a regular basis, please let your child’s teacher know.  We are very appreciative of your additional support, and it makes a huge difference to the children’s learning.  We would love you to come and join us!  Tea and coffee provided too!

Learning at Home


We love to share  your child’s learning with you on Tapestry.. We also like to see any learning you do at home. This app is able to be purchased through the app store and can be used on most smartphones and tablet devices. You can also access Tapestry through your web brower on the computer. Please do not share photos from Tapestry on social media. If you have any questions about Tapestry please come and speak to Mrs Bennett, Mrs Allen or Miss Smith

Reading Challenge

Don’t forget to read for 5 minutes, 5 times a week!  Your reading Challenge Slip must be returned on MONDAY MORNING so the ‘scores on the doors’ can be collated by class teachers during registration and sent to the school office.   An Early Years class has never topped the leader board!    Come on EYFS let’s keep reading!

The Language of BAD

(Bad is good!)

We want to be challenged at Trimley St Mary.

We have been using the language of BAD to extend our learning.  We have been taking on challenges to show if we are brave, (paddling) adventurous (snorkeling) or daring (diving)!
