Welcome to the website of Holy Trinity Catholic Academy, Newark, Nottinghamshire.


Welcome to the Foundation 1 class page.

Dragons! 1 Our castle role play area
Picture 1 Spike our class pet



Our topic this half term is 'Dragons' which we are all really excited about. We have had a pet dragon, Spike, who was delivered to us this week. We are looking after him and teaching him how to be a really good friend. We have so many exciting activities planned starting with building our very own castle and making dragon eggs. We are learning about who lives in castles, making treasure and jewels for them and creating a life scale dragon to protect our castle! Our topic will come to end by having a princess and knights picnic in Newark Castle grounds and we can't wait!


Our RE topic is, 'Celebrations' and we will be looking at what the Parish family celebrates and how they celebrate. 



Every Monday the children can choose a Library Book to take home. These can be kept for a week and swapped on a regular basis. On a Tuesday, a new Busy Bee Challenge will be sent home, this should be completed and returned to school by the following Tuesday. Every Thursday a 'News Book' comes home. Please feel free to write about something they have done, encouraging the children to draw or stick a photo in themselves. We bake each Friday and a group of children and will bake enough goodies for the whole of the class to taste! We will all go to Eco-land on a Wednesday. We will have P.E on a Monday morning and PM children on a Friday afternoon. If you have any questions about our routines please feel free to ask!
