Trotts Hill Houses 2020-2021
Our Trotts Hill Houses promote responsibility, good learning, team work and competition. Every child from Nursery to Year 6, and every adult who works in the school, is placed in one of our four Houses. Each House takes it name after an inspirational person, who has achieved something outstanding in their lifetime.
Children can earn House points for displaying excellent learning behaviours and showing positive manners around the school.
Each term the House Captains will collate each class’ House Points and a winning House will be announced in assembly.

Dream Big House Event- Wednesday 6th November
On Wednesday 6th November the House Captain led a "Dream Big" house event. They introduced the event with a powerpoint about people who inspire them. Each house talked and learnt about aspirations and hopes and dreams for the future. They made dream catchers, dream jars, dream mobiles and leaves to hang on the aspiration tree. The children worked together, supporting and helping each other, showing the Trotts Hill learning behaviours. The houses then came back together and shared their hopes and dream for the future. The career aspirations for our pupils reached far and wide. Some aspirations for future jobs were:
Sophie- Hairdresser, Freya- Paleontologist, George- Rugby Player, Scout- Police, Grace- Journalist, JB- Accountant or Gamer.
During the year we hope to invite visitors to our school to inspire children and expose them to various different professions.
Thank you to Mrs Altringham for coming to talk to the children about her job as a midwife during assembly today. Mrs Altringham has been a nurse and then a midwife for 40 years and has delivered thousands of babies. We learnt that to work in the medical profession you need to be caring, respectful, patient and hard working.
As part of our dream big project people from different professions have visited our school. So far we have learnt about being an athlete, a police office, a scientist, and a lawyer. We have learnt that it is important to work hard at school, read widely and to use a computer. In order to be successful you need to persevere, be determined and resilient, which are some of our Trotts Hill learning behaviours.
