Family Dining

Trinity Chapeltown – Family Dining

Family Dining is a very important part of our day.  At Dixons Trinity Chapeltown, we will come together as a community to eat freshly cooked, healthy meals in a family setting.  Children will sit around a dining table with an adult, they will set the table and serve each other their food.  They will eat from the best plates and dishes and drink from real glasses.  Conversation and manners will be modelled by the adult; this is a time of day when our children can learn so much!  We will talk about our values, what we have learned during the day, and this is a time when we can cement our relationships.

Chapeltown Visits to Bradford

It has been a pleasure to show parents around Dixons Music Primary and Dixons Trinity over the last few weeks in order to give them a real flavour of exactly what Dixons Trinity Chapeltown will look and feel like. Thank you to all those who’ve visited; I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing the Dixons Trinity school community and all the learning that goes on there.

The children who accompanied their parents on the visits seemed to have a great time and were particularly excited about the music lessons and choir. It was a great to see the 3 year olds joining in with the play-based learning in the Reception classroom and the younger students interacting with them so well.

We saw excellent learning in the Maths Mastery lessons with students talking to each other about their maths, explaining their calculations and supporting each other in their progress. The Year 4 councillors were a credit to their school – confidently and articulately answering all questions fired at them by interested parents.

It was very obvious just how much music takes place in Dixons Music Primary with all the many and varied instruments available in classrooms and the way the children talked about their music progress and their performances. Eating lunch with the children, Family Dining style, clearly demonstrated the exemplary behaviour and attitudes of the students.

Thank you so much to Michelle Long and her team for inviting us in to all the classrooms and to the students who led the tours and explained some of the ways in which we ensure that every minute of the school day is used to help us achieve our mission.
