Year 1 - Trinity
Hello everyone and welcome to our class page! :)
Trinity class is extremely fortunate to have two teachers Ms Zhorna and Ms Knight. We also have an amazing Teaching Assistant, Ms Uddin.
Trinity Class is an exciting place to learn!
In our class, we have thirty brilliant, enthusiastic, talented and hardworking children, who are supported in their learning by an outstanding Year 1 team and very supportive parents.
Our class values of willingness, ambition, resilience, respect, enthusiasm and never giving up, permeate the life of our school, with staff, pupils and parents working and learning together, sharing a common aim for all our children to be the best that they can be in our journey of building tomorrow, today.
I hope our class page gives you a flavour of life in Trinity Class!
With best wishes,
Ms Zhorna and Ms Knight

World Book Day
World Book Day changes lives through a love of books and shared reading. Trinity Class celebrated World Book Day on 3 March 2022. “You are a reader,” asserts the 2022 World Book Day theme, and the focus was on getting books into the hands of the children. On World Book Day, every child at Eastbury Community School was given a voucher to spend on whatever book they want, with the hopes of encouraging children to read more. Reading more will help to improve their vocabulary while learning new information, and enhancing their creativity in the process!
It’s also a time when authors, illustrators, books, and reading can be appreciated and celebrated in over 100 countries around the world.
The children had an amazing day dressed up as their favourite book characters! The children had lots of fun at our very own reading cafe in our classrooms. The idea was that the children can share their books with their peers and book menus can be placed on the table with an offer of the book choices
