Dance Festival 10/4/18
On Tuesday, 18 Year 5 and 6 girls from Dance Club attended the North Somerset Dance Festival at the Play house in Weston. The girls had been rehearsing their two routines since September in their after school club lead by Mrs Britton.
The day started by watching all the other school routines during the rehearsals and making sure we were all organised for the evening performances. At 3 0’clock, the children had finished rehearsing so we took a walk over to the Grand Pier to go on rides and have Fish and Chips for dinner. It was a great way to spend time relaxing and having fun before the big show!
We then made our way back to the Playhouse to start getting ready for our first performance. It was a frantic rush to get all of our hair, make up and costumes ready but we managed it!
This year, the criteria was to create a dance that told a story so Trinity Dance club choose to tell a story of 4 innocent girls who became lost in a mystical forest where many spooky shadows and spirits put them under a spell. This was a contemporary dance routine and the girls absolutely loved performing this piece at the show. Our costumes were fantastic and really set the mood for the piece.
The second dance routine was a modern funk/jazz routine to Cant stop the feeling by Justin Timberlake. This routine was full of energy and we performed with such enthusiasm that we had the whole audience clapping from start to finish.
It was a fantastic day and we loved every minute! Thank you to Mrs Britton for organising and supporting our dance club and Mrs Ripley, Mrs Nickells, Miss Christopher and Miss Long who came to support us as well.

Our second match was against Portishead Primary. We started strong and made sure our defence was fierce. We won the match 1:0.
We then played St Joseph’s B team. This team had great upfront players but our defence was strong. We won 2:0 with excellent goals from Max Holder and Thomas Roach.

North Somerset Cross Country Level 2 Event
On Thursday 6th of October, 25 children from years 4 and 5 represented Trinity in North Somerset Cross Country at Bristol Grammar School.
We started the morning with the Year 5 girls race. The girls had to run two laps around the field which was equivalent to 2,500 metres. They did remarkably well and two of our girls, Rosa and Ellie Siegle finished in the top 12 runners and have made it through to the regional championships.
Eagerly waiting at the start line, were our Year 5 boys who also ran the 2,500 metres with great determination. All of the 6 boys came in the top 25 runners and Noah Ford, Alex Boyd, Sam Ledward and Joe Smith are also through to the regional Championships in November.
Not only did the Year 5 achieve personal bests but as a team overall the girls came 3rd out of 13 school and the boys came 1st winning well deserved meals!
The last two races of the day were the mixed Year 3 and 4 boys and girls races. The girls went first and showed great courage to try their best to make it around the 1,500m course. These races were for individual medals for the top 10 runners. Livi Sherlock came in 4th place and Isabelle Petitt came 7th both winning medals!
The Year 4 boys race was by far the closest race between the runners and all of the Trinity boys had a strong start. An acknowledgement must be made for two boys from Trinity who were by far the stars of the whole race (even said by others schools). Jacob Avery ran the whole race in the top 3 and showed an enormous amount of skill and determination but unluckily fell in the last leg of the race. As lots of runners ran passed to finish their race, Archie Rawlinson gave up his position of 12th in the race to help Jacob. Both the boys, arms around each other’s shoulders, finished the race together still in an impressive place of 22nd and 20th. They showed great courage and friendship during a challenging situation. Well done!

The third race was front crawl. Trinity once again made an outstanding effort in their heats and 17 children made it into the finals. After swimming the fastest they could, Hannah won gold, Eloise and Oliver won bronze and Addy achieved another silver medal.
Next up were the Freestyle races. The children needed lots of stamina for these races as the Year 3 and 4s would need to swim 2 lengths of the pool and the Year 5 and 6s would attack three lengths of the pool in their favourite stroke. It was a tough challenge but all the children persevered to the finish line! Hannah came in 1st place for the Year 4 Girls and Sam took 1st place for the Year 4 boys. Lauren in Year 5 also won a gold medal, along with Addy who came 2nd for the Year 6 girls.
The last race was the one we had all been waiting for… The relay! It was wonderful to see all the children working as a team, encouraging and supporting each other. It all paid off too when the Year 3 girls and the Year 4 girls both won 1st place in their races. The Year 3 boys and Year 6 boys also won Bronze for their performance! Well done!
At the end of the day, all the scores were collected in and Trinity waited anxiously to find out where we had placed overall. In joint 4th place were Portishead Primary and St Peters, In 3rd place was St Josephs. It was down to Trinity and High Down… Trinity were over the moon to hear they had placed 2nd in the whole competition.
Huge congratulations to the all the children and a big thank you to the staff and parent helpers for their support and organisation. It was a wonderful day and we cannot wait for next year to do it all over again!

The children were determined to showcase their talent and started the competition with a strong lead by winning their individual games against Mangotsfield Primary School. Trinity went on to play 3 other schools with great determination. It was fair to say that there was tough competition as many of the children they played were County players. Trinity came third in their category which meant they had just missed out on playing in the semi-finals.
However, the children had a fantastic afternoon trying lots of new sports in the Game Zone such as Fencing, Yoga, Orienteering, Dodgeball and Parkour. It was a fantastic day of sport and the children should be extremely proud of themselves for taking part in such an impressive and challenging competition.

At the end of the morning, the scores were collected and counted and Trinity Speedy Sharks came in second place and Trinity Super Ninjas came in first place out of 10 teams! They represented Trinity superbly and it was so lovely to hear Charlie Hall say ‘Even though, one team came first and the other came second, we all came first really because Trinity are one big team and we work together.’

Rosa Ford and Ellie Holder came in 1st in the standing long jump for the girls jumping a whopping 1.85 metres and Noah Ford beat his personal best by jumping a massive 2 metres.

Year 3 and 4 Gymnastics Competition
On Monday 13th of June , 10 Year 3 and 4 children represented Trinity in the North Somerset Gymnastics competition at the Gemini Club in Nailsea.
